The pyramid-shaped Tour Triangle skyscraper, whose design team includes Herzog & de Meuron and Valode & Pistre Architectes, could change the skyline of the French capital.

This contentious newbuild, which is planned for completion ahead of the Olympics in 2024, is expected to incorporate a hotel between floors 12 and 17.

A new Parisian landmark

Rising 42 storeys and 180 metres high, Tour Triangle has been earmarked for a well-located Parc des Expositions site neighbouring Porte de Versailles Square. Upon completion, it’d be one of the tallest buildings within the city, not far behind the 209-metre Tour Montparnasse and 324-metre Eiffel Tower.

According to Herzog & de Meuron, the project aims to give greater visibility to the Porte de Versailles and Parc des Expositions site within the city as a whole, while also changing the flow and perception of urban space on a plot that currently divides the 15th district of Paris with the communities of Issy-les-Moulineaux and Vanves.

With this development, Herzog & de Meuron hopes to restore the historical axis formed by Rue de Vaugirard and Avenue Ernest Renan. The proposed structure would be set back from the surrounding residential areas, with its triangular shape reducing shadows cast on adjacent buildings.

Panoramic views of Paris

This landmark scheme would house coworking and open-plan office space, a health centre, daycare facilities, and a hotel comprising 120 guest rooms. Interestingly, the north-east side facing the centre of Paris would have a funicular linking the street-level public spaces to a restaurant and a belvedere offering panoramic views across the city.

Developer Unibail-Rodamco, in collaboration with investor Viparis Holding, is now set to begin construction. The design is being overseen by a team that includes Herzog & de Meuron and Valode & Pistre Architectes.

It’s not yet known which brand would operate the proposed hotel.
