Good news: The Tour Phare (third picture below) just got signed off for construction.
The one thing I want to mention about Paris buildings is that the ones located in Paris la Defense i.e. Courbevoie, Nanterre and Puteaux are measured from the bottom - including underground/parking floors - to top and not from slab to top. For example, Tour Gan is not 184m tall as mentioned in most brochures and all. It's real height from slab to top is 166m. This confusion hits most of the Paris la Defense (EPAD) buildings which subsequently come out taller than they really are.
I found this out when I got the EPAD site plan. Plus I found confirmation through different comments by designers.
But even so, the Hermitage towers will look fantastic in the landscape.

Gan is 179m tall from the natural ground. (all the other 187m or 184m are wrong)

Here a view from the natural ground

I don't why you couldn't include it, especially when it is possible to see the tower from this natural ground.
Note that the undrgound parking are bellow and not included in the 179m.

Gan tower is 179m form the natural ground and 166m from the concrete slab.

Arena 92

Location: Paris Nanterre/La Défense
Tenant: Racing-Métro 92, Rugby
Capacity: 32,000/35,000 seats
Opening: late 2013
Architects: Atelier Christian de Portzamparc,
Cost: €320M

Quote:
"In the sweetness of the greatness but also of curves" is how Christian de Portzamparc described his Arena92 at the press conference on Monday, February 14. The challenge he said: "To serve the ambition of the program while leaving the purely quadrangular forms imposed by the place. Very soon, the genius of the place that decides ...".

Portzamparc drew "a concrete shell with a soft beige color, which floats on a necklace made of shiny flakes and pearl, glass and metal, allowing the play of light both day and night." "This is the project that met our best expectations," said Jacky Lorenzetti, Racing-Métro owner and promoter of the Arena. "A consensus choice for a project that respects the environment and a very smooth architecture, perfectly integrated in a very specific environment."
The project is also accompanied by strong social concerns, as it provides a volume of integration corresponding to 100,000 hours, an "exceptional" figure said the mayor of Nanterre, Patrick Jarry. This commitment by the Racing Arena will be placed in one of the agreements being developed between the city of Nanterre and the promoter.

Spectacular view of La Grande Arche from the gastronomic restaurant

On the ground floor, courtyard side: the shops, the clubhouse of Racing Metro 92, a brewery, but also the main entrance to the Arena which will allow access to 15,000 spectators.
Additional entrances are also distributed around the Arena.
North side frontage: 33,000 square meters of office spaces separated from the stadium by a large skylights that allow natural light. Office entrances are located on the RD914.
Finally, the upstairs gastronomic restaurant offers a spectacular view of the Arche of La Defense.

The first row at 4m50 from the touchline

The Arena itself is organized mainly on three sides: for example in stadium configuration, the north stand accommodates only a few rows. The spectators-players proximity is very high: only 4m50 separate the forefront of the touchline. In concert hall configuration, the stage occupies the north side, its location is flexible depending on the desired capacity.
The total cost of this project is 320 million euros according to Jacky Lorenzetti, project to be funded up to a third by the "naming", a third by the rental office, a third by ticket sales. For the "naming", several candidates have already made known said Jacky Lorenzetti, who wants an appointment for a term of 15 years.
Finally, note that the Christian de Portzamparc's project will be built by the GTM, a Nanterrienne subsidiary of the Vinci group.

The facade of Eqho (formerly named Descartes, was used to host IBM's french headquarters) is being changed. So I'm relaying some pictures that morgandoug posted on French forum PSS today, many thanks to him and Jexmen for their frequent updates.















It's... yellow I guess. Any comment? Most French ones seem skeptical, some already say they clearly don't like it, it would be tacky or so to them. Bah, we'll see once it's completed. This is how it was before:

finally.... I remember it from La Defense project updates years ago.

-------

I've noticed that La Defense really has had a lot of its skyscrapers renovated. I can't think of any other cities where so many renovations of older towers have been done, especially major exterior renovations like you see in La Defense. What do any of you think the reason for this is?
