^^ that one is looking much better than the latest proposals I've seen.
Where is this one planned in LD ?

Minato Ku Jan 12, 2008 9:55 AM

in the big skyscraper canyon, so Boulevard Circulaire part west, Courbevoie near CBX tower (now Dexia) and Coeur Defense

n°4 of "projets non reveles" (Orange) in this map

Are the twins of PB22 approved yet ?

On the map above :
- in green are buildings currently under construction
- in blue are revealed projects, those which have been announced with renderings.
- in orange are unrevealed projects, those which are rumoured but haven't been announced yet.

The Tour Carpe Diem (orange n°4) has just been announced today. So it should be updated as "blue" on the map. Here's the rendering of the building :

Dépêche n° 2361 - Mardi 15 janvier 2008

Suite à l’acquisition le 2 juillet 2007 de la Tour CB 21- ex Gan - située à la Défense pour 486 M€ (voir notre dépêche n° 1834), Foncière des Régions a obtenu, le 8 janvier, l’agrément bureaux de la part de la préfecture de région. Cet agrément autorise la foncière à accroître de 25 000 m2 HON, ce qui permettra de réaliser une tour de près de 100 000 m2 HON après restructuration. Cette étape conforte le projet de restructuration de la tour et s’inscrit dans le calendrier prévu par les équipes de Foncière des régions afin de livrer, début 2011, une tour de nouvelle génération et certifiée Haute Qualité Environnementale.
« Foncière des régions a constitué, dès l’acquisition, une équipe expérimentée et a désigné en concertation avec l’Epad, l’architecte Jean MAS de Ateliers 234, pour réaliser un projet s’inscrivant dans le plan de renouveau de la Défense et répondant aux besoins des grands utilisateurs », souligne la foncière.

^ Good news. :tup:

Fabb Jan 15, 2008 6:41 PM

^If that's correct - and it's a big IF - that'll be the best project in LD since the renovation of AXA.
IMO of course.

A bigger rendering of Carpe Diem tower. (166 m)

Grumpy Jan 19, 2008 9:59 AM

The top looks very interesting.
What could that green thing be ?

Unselected Proposed Signal tower by Dexia
Samyn and Partners architect

A little picture in la Defense

Fabb Feb 4, 2008 11:44 AM

^That's the spirit !
Unfortunately, this project will join the numerous visions that would have made LD a great business district and always failed to materialize.

Minato Ku Feb 4, 2008 12:13 PM

Many people (include me) think the oposite about this vision. :)

Me too , as refreshing it may look like this building is to match for LD

Renovation Gan Tower(CB31) 275m

Grumpy Feb 7, 2008 1:53 PM

That is a kind of raping the landmark of LD :(

AJphx Feb 8, 2008 2:32 AM

When I first saw the exterior rendering of Tour Carpe Diem, I thought it would be a nice tower.... but now that I see those renderings of the roof, base, and interior, I am in awe! Are they sure Robert AM Stern designed that? ;)

As for GAN, considering it still looks great after three decades and being a 70s design, it really seems to me that it is a quality and timeless design now. The new plan looks good but not worth it in place of a classic tower like GAN.
