A couple of highrises that should be going up sometime soon in the district of la Part-Dieu.

These 2 plain boxes are stuck to the train station.

The tallest is offices, 170m (557 ft) tall. The smaller is a 460-room hotel. The 2 buildings are connected by a little mall.
They called that program "Two Lyon", an utterly boring name to make Quebec laugh their French-speaking ass off.

This is called Silex, that sounds better.

They posted several options for the design on their thread, but if I followed well, that's what will be implemented.
It includes the renovation of the building below and a couple of new components.

The tallest bit of it is 135m (443 ft) tall.

There's another project called EVA, but it's bigger (220m) and since nothing's booming in France (we'll soon be the last still stuck in a slower economy lol), they'll have to be real patient for that one.
