Paris' first skyscraper revealed

Paris' first skyscraper to be approved by officials since authorities in the French capital lifted a ban on towers was unveiled by the city's council last week.

The 180m tall tower is designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron and is located at Porte de Versailles in Southern Paris. The building will include offices, a hotel and public gardens at ground level.

Paris officials voted to lift a ban on high rise buildings in the French capital in a bid to combat the city’s housing shortage an last year and le Projet Triangle is the first to be approved. At 180m tall, it will be the third tallest building after the Eiffel Tower and Tour Montparnasse.
