Welcome to the Elevator World News Podcast. This week’s news podcast is sponsored by LIFTEX 180-M-TALL TRIANGULAR TOWER FOR PARIS PROPER The first 100-m-plus-tall tower approved in 46 years by the Administrative Court of Paris is a 41-story, 180-m-tall triangular tower designed by Herzog & de Meuron. To be located in the Porte de Versailles neighborhood, in the south of the city, Tour Triangle was approved with modifications by the Council of Paris in mid-2015. The Urban Developer reported it was first unveiled in 2008 and "was quickly met with fierce criticism" due to its size, height and design, leading to its rejection in 2014 and delays by opponent groups. It would become the city's third tallest structure, after the Eiffel Tower and the Montparnasse Tower. Five thousand construction workers would be employed, with another 5,000 employee occupants upon completion. Construction is expected to begin late this year to target wrapping up in 2024 for the Paris Olympics.
