Obviously, the "Tour Phare" doesn't do the job.
Is there still hope for a substantial increase of height ? a nice redesign ?
I wouldn't be surprised if the Morphosis tower turns out to be 320/330 m at the top of the structure. However, I don't believe there's any reason to think it will go beyond.
Apparently, most of the first stage of the expansion plan of La Défense from 2006 to 2013 will be around the Northern circular boulevard, which is currently ending its modification from a motorway to an urban avenue. The Southern circular boulevard will also be modified as such, but this requires a larger investment.
Some gossips assumes that the second stage of the expansion plan, from 2013 to 2020, will see more towers on the southern side, nearby the southern circular boulevard. During that second stage, a 400 meter-tower is not excluded, however, its construction will depend on the evolution of the real estate market in the business district, and the success of the first stage.
