The skyline of LD won't even top that of LA or Atlanta.
We knew it already, but, that's timid.

I think the building design could be nice,
but I am not sure if I like the "cloured fields."
I hope they will turn out better in reality.

I do like the spot where it is going to be built cause all the activity seems to go on on the right side when looking towards la Grand' Arche

Ok, so those are atriums. Lovin' that idea. That last pic shows why I like it, and also why I'd fear going out on those balconies (not good at heights) - but I'd do it anyway.

My goodness there is going to be a lot of work to be done to fill that enormous gap where the tower is located

nouvels tower is amazing...at first i thought it was abit dull, but those atriums really are something. if they end up looking anything like they do in the renders i will be absolutly gobsmacked! still if anyone can carry it off it has to be nouvel, his detailing is secound to none! i had the same doubts about tour agbar, but that is fucking stunning! i think a good choice although i would have loved to see fosters tower going up...

i have a question though. i know paris is feeling the credit crunch in a very similar way to london, tour signal is mixed use so this must help, but whos funding it and how strong are there finances? land sec. in london is one of the biggest real estate companies in europe and they're playing it cautious atm as are british land. unless this tower has real solid backing or a pre let wont the world wide economic slow down effect it?

anyway i have to say, with a hint of jealousy, that la defence is going look sweet in a few years... not that we haven't got our own eye candy soon to be rising over hear

I don't really have any info about that, but I have the feeling that the credit crunch will be over long before construction even begins at the site.
All the major projects in La Défense have started late in the recent past. I don't think that one will be different.
