A pyramid-like tower rising 180 metres above Paris, this is the first skyscraper to be built inside the French capital in 30 years, after the 210-metre Montparnasse tower.
The building has already been named by some the ‘Delanoë tower’ after Paris’ gay mayor, Bertrand Delanoë, who has battled to bring towers to the low-rise city.
Offices, a luxury hotel looking towards the city centre. There are also plans for luxury boutiques, a panoramic restaurant, a swimming pool, hanging gardens and a Babel-like “museum of languages of the world”. Scheduled for completion by 2012. source
