This is part of the Paris Rive Gauche redevelopment plan, i.e. located in the area of the 13th arrondissement currently redeveloped. On the edge of the city.

- 10,000 m² (107,000 sq ft) of 'activités' (?? whatever they mean by 'activities')

More accurately, the project is in the Masséna-Bruneseau neighborhood that looks like nothing exciting for now, right there
along the ring highway and those rail tracks.
Architect Yves Lion's firm is in charge of planning the redevelopment of Masséna-Bruneseau, this is promoting their work.
So the 'tour de bureaux de 180 m de hauteur' was standing for this project Duo, the design was still unknown back then. The 2 other buildings are residential, I think those 2 are correct renders.
Yves Lion's plan would specify 3 more highrises (designs not known yet) in that neighborhood, as shown by better renders
on his site.
Oh, of course some unfriendly legal appeals are expected as well but the project is gladly supported by the local government, so it's likely to get built. Work is said to begin in early 2014, it would be completed in 2018 then.
