In terms of height, The Eiffel Tower will be the only higher object in Paris.

The skyscrapers will be visible from every place in the city. We hope that before the end of the year we will have both the financial agreement finalised and the project initiated. - announces Emin Iskenderov, Chief Executive w Hermitage

The idea is to create the first French skyscraper containing offices, flats and a hotel. The decision to build this object coincides with falling real property prices and office space rents. In such a difficult period it is not an easy undertaking to perform. Such an investment is a difficult task to complete because of both safety and flow of users within the facility. - Comments Olivier Gerard, Head of Cushman & Wakefield France 

Emin Iskenderov is not discouraged by difficult economic conditions and difficulties within the project itself, and indicates at similar project in Asia and Middle East that celebrate their success. They plan to offer services that are not found anywhere else in Paris. If this project succeeds, there might be a place for it on the market, of course, if it will be done well. - observes Alexander Kraft, Chairman and CEO w Sotheby’s International Realty in France and Monaco
