PARIS | air2 | 663 ft | 42 floors

I don't think any thread has been made for this building.
It's finally starting.
They are now destroying the old building that will be replaced by Air2

These are now old renderings but they didn't make any new ones.....

Pretty sure there was one, but it must've gotten lost cause this has been taking forever.

I just read what sounds like a relevant comment by a dweller of the district on the French forum.
He says the team and the means on site are quite small for now, so they might only be trying some test of deconstruction to avoid any problem for later phases.
I think that would make sense.

That said, we can now firmly assert the building should have disappeared by late 2018, at the latest. Once work got started for good, local engineers and workers are usually pretty fast to actually do it, aren't they?
The longest is always to make a decision once and for all; that shows investors and managers have been overly cautious or skeptical. That's annoying...

Anyway, there'll be no plan or attempt to renovate it, which is great news when a little bunch of buildings around there are in the 300-foot range. Something twice as tall like Air2 will make the cluster look much better and a bit more impressive when you stand on the esplanade.

This would be canceled. The owner of the project changed.
Not too soon. It's about time something happens to this site.

The developer now in charge would refurbish the existing structure by adding roughly a dozen of floors to it. It's been abandoned for long by now.
The result would be slightly shorter than what was planned first; around 150m or something.
If the design is better, I'll buy it anyway.

No rendering yet.
