Seems like Paris-the city of lights, will have one more tourist spot to add on its list. Fosters + Partners reveals plans for Western Europe’s tallest mixed-use towers which will be located in the La Defense area of the city.
The two 324m tall towers will be part of a mixed-use development called Hermitage Plaza. The towers will accommodate a luxury hotel, panoramic spa, apartments, offices, serviced apartments and shops. Norman Foster (founder and chairman of Fosters + Partners) said: ‘A light catching addition to the Paris skyline, the development will also provide a public piazza that leads down to the river’s edge to create a new destination for the city.’ Construction on site is due to start in 2010 and finish by 2014. Let’s wait and watch.
