Thumbs up PARIS | Duo | 115 & 175 m (377 & 574 ft) | 25 & 39 floors

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.

Developers: Ivanhoé Cambridge / Hines
Design: Ateliers Jean Nouvel

A developer from Montreal, QC and another from Houston, TX in da same house, they would invest €500 to 600 mi in there.
  • 63,000 m² (678,000 sq ft) of offices
  • 15,000 m² (161,000 sq ft) for a hotel
  • 10,000 m² (107,000 sq ft) of 'activités' (?? whatever they mean by 'activities')
  • 2,000 m² (21,000 sq ft) of retail

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.

The "black hat" on top of the lower building looks ridiculous.
Overall, the project doesn't look too bad, even though it's trying too much to be unconventional.

In the end, with all respect due to Jean Nouvel, his laureate Duo somewhat appears awkward compared to Christian de Portzamparc's proposal for the same lot of Masséna-Bruneseau, at least given the renderings we've seen so far.
Make up your own opinion.

The article says the socialist administration of Paris didn't like it, turning down the residential option in particular, while they constantly pretend crying over the oppressive lack of housing in metro Paris.

Tristero posted 56 pics of that mock-up, that's the Paris Rive Gauche redevelopment area in the 13th arrondissement.



You can see bobo Paris chose to remain a flat land, highrises are rejected along the Périphérique on the border with the adjacent suburb. Lots of those low-rises in the inner part of the redeveloped area are already built.
It's a little off-topic but since we got there, see the table at the top of the dedicated PSS thread if you're curious (click on that downward arrow button to fully extend the table). Blue squares are the completed buildings, maroon is U/C and green is approved/proposed projects. It's all modern low-rises, by far the biggest modern development within central Paris at the moment. There are some good original things, some others look disappointing.

for how long we've been hearing of the crise du logement in paris, it's fantastic finally to see some serious residential development beginning to take shape. demand being what it is, the city could easily absord 10,000 new units a year, if the politics would allow it. obviously, i guess, most/all new development will occur at the margins and the inner suburbs, so it's important that these projects go as tall and dense as politically possible.
