Tour Montparnasse is about to get a 300M€ Facelift

The €300 million-renovation, financed entirely by the tower’s co-owners, is due to be completed by 2024, in time for the Paris Olympic Games. The metamorphosis of the Montparnasse Tower is poised to become a flagship of urban renewal and will undoubtedly spur a complete reinvention of the entire left-bank neighbourhood.

Launched in June 2016, the competition challenged bidders to create a powerful, dynamic and bold new identity for the Tour Montparnasse, while fully addressing all the challenges of the modern world regarding user accessibility, comfort and energy performance. The project submitted by Nouvelle AOM encompasses all of these goals. The firm’s innovation driven concept anchors the Montparnasse Tower firmly in the new millennium. It will put the neighbourhood ‘back on the map’ and become an iconic symbol of the entire French capital.

“This was a huge challenge, as the Tower isn’t like any other,” explained the co-owners who sat on the selection panel. “Nouvelle AOM’s project perfectly captures the spirit of the 21st century, giving the Tower a multifaceted identity revolving around attractive, innovative new uses. The Tower will breathe new life into the Montparnasse neighbourhood.”

“The City of Paris is delighted with this choice, which marks the beginning of a major
transformation of both the Montparnasse Tower and the city itself. Nouvelle AOM’s project is perfectly aligned with our architectural vision: resolutely focused on uses, kind to the
environment and exemplary in terms of energy efficiency. The consortium’s subtle architectural intent will allow the Tower to recapture the hearts of the people of Paris. Scheduled to be unveiled in time for the Olympic Games, the revamped tower will become an iconic landmark in Paris’ modern cityscape – and it is already an immense source of pride,” says Jean-Louis Missika, deputy mayor of Paris for urban planning, architecture, attractiveness, economic development and the Greater Paris (Grand Paris) initiatives.

Grumpy in Paris – 5 ways to beat the upcoming ‘winter blues’

Living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world has its many perks. A wealth of galleries, museums, delicious food, beautiful walks and a melodic language under no matter what context. But all pros have their cons and one of the lesser points of Paris these days is the ‘rentrée effect’ where people have come back from their holidays, said goodbye to summer and are now waiting for winter (even though we’ve only just hit autumn). Here are some ways to beat those winter blues and enjoy the colder season ahead … […]
