BEAUTIFUL! (as Zaha's work is, without fail)

Good to see France getting highrise action, particularly in the south.

That's true. I've been there several times and I'm very skeptical about this location.

A few other views with another project by Fabrice Drain (tour Icade) :

I actually like the location. Cities the world over are filled with virtually unusable plots wedged between infrastructure. Lowrise infill won't work. The only option is something which will elevate the occupants above the noise of the highway. Ergo a tower.

It's land use at least.

How could I have forgotten about this building..! I remember this being one of my favorites proposed, and after all this time it's shaping together quite beautifully.
