LYON | Incity | 170 m / 560 ft (roof) | 37 floors

Office building in the Part-Dieu business district which is expected to be widely redeveloped within the coming years, Lyon being significant on the European scale.

Video Link


For renderings: tour-incity.com, since the French forum won't tolerate any hotlinking at all.

The 2nd layer of the cladding and the spire would take the overall structure to 200 m (656 ft).

It's getting to be a half decent little skyline. We need MORE signature towers for Europe!

This is a nice building. That Radisson Hotel on the other hand.

Yea, it looks weird at first sight but you get used to it. It's been there since the 70s, people in Lyon call it le crayon (the pencil) and when people nickname a building, it's often the sign that they regard it something friendly so I ended up having respect for it. BTW, see Frankfurt's Messeturm for example, it kinda looks like a more recent taller crayon. I don't think its 70s facade would ever change because it rather fits to the salmon-colored rooves that make the city look warm and it's essential to its original aspect. In fact, it's just clearly too lonely, same problem as that of the tour Montparnasse in central Paris.

I'd rather be concerned about those long bars nearby Incity...

I like the nickname, but I don't like the square-base pyramid on top at all. The long bars aren't as ugly, but they definitely do more damage to pedestrian flow and city form.

No problem with le crayon, to each his own. It's definitely peculiar but since many Lyonnais like it as a cool part of their downtown, then I guess it's fine.

However, although we've seen lots of far worse bar facades, I can't let you say those bars aren't ugly. I mean their volume is insulting, we've been traumatized by that kind of post-war crap over here, all over the country. I don't know yet what's planned right there but simply from seeing them, I can tell they won't last for long in that way they are. They might be heavily restructured or most likely simply demolished.

There are more high-rises planned in this district.

There's a drill on the site, they're finally starting the foundations. I just saw some pictures on their SSC forum...

Well, it's gonna be comforting to see something sort of tall growing somewhere in France outside Paris.

Sample of the facade.


tour-incity.com

I would've liked some lively colors, but this will be good enough for now.
We'll be watching subsequent projects over there...

There's no hurry but you guys might move this to the construction subforum if you will.
Minato or I will bring some of their updates from time to time.

It been a long time that there isn't been any update.
The tower is growing.

Here two pictures taken by me from the east side on Cours Lafayette




Note that 154m is only the height of the top floor, the roof is at 170m and 200m tall with the spire.

The first skyscraper in France built New York-style, directly upon the street! I wish Paris had some like that, emerging straight from the streets in the central areas.

Yeah, I'd been a little harsh, underestimating a little bit the actual height. It's their fault! They've been making such a freaking noise of it! The Lyonnais...
Bah, you know I would've done the same for Paris anyway.

Agreed, I think that's merely the 1st highrise fairly tall I see normally aligned to a street wall in the country.

That's downright making French history, folks!

Seriously and quite obviously to us used to awkward layouts onto large post-war slabs, that simple fact is indeed going to make a huge positive difference. I can't tell whether this single one would be enough, but I believe a proper layout is the very main thing to change the perception of highrises to the entire population. Lyon's surely going to really enjoy this one better arranged along a regular street of theirs.

Tour Incity is starting to appear above the skyline of Lyon. It will be taller than the tallest pointed skyscraper in the picture.

Pictures by KoootiK on SSC.

The tower begin to be visible from the main commercial area of Lyon, the Presqu’île.

From Rue Grenette (you can notice, the growing core)

From Place des Cordeliers

From Cours Lafayette, west side
