Tour Triangle by Herzog & de Meuron approved


Paris is to get its first skyscraper for over 40 years after Herzog & de Meuron won planning permission for its 180-metre-high Tour Triangle. Anne Hidalgo, the pro-development mayor of Paris, tweeted that she is “proud and happy that Triangle can be born in Paris”, adding that the project will create 5,000 jobs during its construction and a further 5,000 jobs once built. Once built, Tour Triangle will become the city’s third tallest building after the 324-metre Eiffel Tower and the 209-metre Montparnasse Tower – the last building over 100 metres to be built in the French capital.Read More
