Nice photos !
CBX looks like the big fat bitch behind Europe.
I'm glad it doesn't have a flat roof.

Well, what can we do about it? Legend says that Ivan the Terrible ordered the eyes of the Basil's Cathedral architects poked so that they would never be able to create anything that rivals it. These days there are few if any restrictions on copycat designs...

The biggest business districts in europe are the Opera district in Paris and the City of London; both around 7 million square meters.

La Défense is the biggest district of that kind in europe, with about 3 to 3.5 million square meters.

Oh, btw that (fake and inaccurate) rendering from the newspaper doesn't mimice 30 st mary axe, but T1 tower.
Tho there's a freedom tower and a mini-burj dubai, but they're just there to represent what the district could look like in a few years. This is nothing official anyway, in case some people didn't get it...

fortunately
I will not like La Defense with those building.
the mini-burj is in reality the renovation of the Tour Assur or Tour Axa (225 m ).

Here is another rendering on the renovated Tour AXA:




And here is a diagram of the tower I've created for SSP:


larger version

Unfortunately, I can't upload it yet to the SSP database. Apparently, diagrams of renovated towers can't be uploaded before the renovation has started.
