  • Hermitage Plaza is a project of two skyscrapers in the La Défense business district outside Paris. The project was revealed by Norman Foster, on March 11, 2009 at the MIPIM (architecture's congress) which took place in Cannes, France. The skyscrapers have been revealed - the tallest is to be 323 m (1,060 ft) high with 93 floors. Hermitage Plaza after completion in 2016 will become the tallest building in the European Union. Hermitage SAS had originally proposed a different design, by Jacques Ferrier, which was running for the Tour Signal contest. The Tour Signal contest was won by Jean Nouvel's project but Hermitage SAS tried to have its towers built anyway. This was possible because Tour Signal's location was free and Ferrier's project was not planned to be at the same place as Nouvel's from the beginning. However Hermitage SAS and Ferrier were soon at odds over undisclosed points and Ferrier left the project; Hermitage SAS then announced it would order a new design from Norman Foster, which became the currently known one. It is scheduled to start by 2012 and to be completed by 2016. This is close but Hermitage SAS claims to have secured the financing from its previous design.
