Sweet twin towers!
Do you think they will be built?

The Russian Investor, Hermitage, firmly believes in this project which they consider by far as their first priority worldwide for the future.

Actually, the fact they've decided to change the architect without abandoning the site and the concept is a good evidence of their motivation. They weren't satisfied of Jacque Ferrier's concept and hired no less than Sir Norman Foster as a replacement.

That makes 5 supertalls proposed for Paris. Here's what I can say about their chances to get built :
  • Generali Tower (318m) : This project is the most advanced. Everything is going on normally and the construction permit has been granted. I would consider it to be the most likely to get built even though delays could be expected considering the crisis.
  • Hermitage Plaza I and II (323m) : As I've already told, the investor is very motivated by the project. The only uncertainty about them is about the residential building "Les Damiers" which has to be destroyed earlier. I doubt that building will be empty by 2010, making unlikely that construction will start then (as it's planned).
  • Phare Tower (301m) : The project is doing fine. The only issue is about the location which is very tricky as the tower would be built above rail lines. There are strong chances it will cost more than expected.
  • Signal Tower (300m) : The spanish investor is in a very bad shape. They nearly confessed the project was abandonned this week at Cannes. Obviously, Jean Nouvel, the architect, doesn't accept this and is trying to find a new investor... but I have strong doubts the tower will actually get built. To tell the truth, I personally hope it won't get built ! I don't like this project.

Hope it helps.

Here an image grouping most projects in Paris :

Buildings added to the photo from left to right :
  • Granite (184m), built in 2008.
  • Phare (300m)
  • Majunga (195m)
  • T1 (187m), built in 2008.
  • Carpe Diem (166m)
  • Air² (235m)
  • Generali (318m)
  • First (240m), under construction.
  • Hermitage I (323m)
  • Hermitage II (323m)

AVA tower and D2 aren't visible on the picture (hidden by other buildings).
Signal hasn't been added to the picture ; if built, it would be located between Granite and Phare.

Patrick Jarry, maire de Nanterre (PCF), s’indigne d’un chiffre considérable. « Le plan de renouveau de La Défense comprenant 400 000m², va engager des recettes » tempère l’établissement public. Mais de nombreux projets de ce plan de relance peinent à voir le jour. L’extension de la tour CB21 a été annulé, le projet de la tour Signal dessiné par Jean Nouvel a de forts risques de ne jamais sortir de terre, suite à la mauvaise santé financière de ses investisseurs espagnols, et de nombreux projets sont repoussés au maximum en raison de la crise économique qui frappe de plain fouet l’ensemble des investisseurs. Aujourd’hui seuls les travaux du projet de la tour Carpe Diem, commenceront avant la fin de l’année, ceux de la tour Generali devraient selon son directeur immobilier commencer au printemps 2010, la tour Ava pourrait elle pousser dès la fin 2010. Les travaux de l’hôtel Radisson, menés par Vinci immobilier commenceront d’ici quelques mois et Unibail déposera dans les semaines à venir les demandes de permis de construire pour ses deux tours : Phare et Majunga. La plupart des projets immobiliers ont déjà pris 1 à 2 ans de retard sur leur calendrier initial. Dans ce contexte incertain, avec le retard de l’ensemble des projets, le report d’autres et des annulations, l’EPAD risque de garder ses comptes dans le rouge pendant de longues années.

Un peu plus haut, photo impressionnante qui semble toute droit sortie de l'imagination d'une BD futuriste.

Rencontre de deux mondes, où l'un domine l'autre. Poésie à la fois baroque et glauque qui s'en dégage.

The tallest tower in La Defence is ~180 metres... it's time to change that.
It seems your instinct was right my friend, after looking through this thread I thought I'd answer your post eight years later here in 2014, unfortunately you were right, and none of them got built, but don't lose hope, the next property cycle is sure to happen in paris soon. I find it interesting to look at old threads of predicted future towers and predicted future skylines, so I can see if any of them actually got built, It might be interesting to work out mathematically how many proposals and approvals and how many actually happen, then we could calculate a probability and work out how many proposals are needed for every one that gets built, but the answer might be a bit depressing, especially in this case, it would still be interesting to do thoe

If people talk about it that's a good thing, at least it gets noticed and remembered, like marmite you either love it or hate it, I would live to see it built out of curiosity about whether it would work or not
