Paris gets its own skyscraper: a giant glass pyramid!

The Tour Triangle is shaped like a pyramid and is the first skyscraper to be built in the city in over 40 years! The controversial Tour Triangle was designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuronand. It will be located in the Porte de Versailles.  With  a height of  180-metres it will make a beautiful addition to the Paris Skyline. It will be the 3rd tallest building in Paris.

The building permit for the development of the Tour Triangle was rejected last year, but this year it was announced that it was approved after the adoption of a new proposal. Construction is expected to be completed in 2018.

Once completed, this impressive new building will house a cultural area, public offices as well as private offices, a conference center, rooftop bar, restaurant and an 120-room hotel.
