Occitanie Tower

Toulouse, France

Description

In the historic ‘rose’ city of Toulouse, the sculpted Occitanie Tower will rise 150 meters above the Canal du Midi in the heart of the city’s business district. Set to be the first skyscraper in the city, the tower’s curvaceous form is interrupted by a spiral of greenery that rises from street level up to the 40th floor. The tower includes 11,000 square meters of office space, a Hilton hotel, up to 120 apartments, a restaurant with panoramic views, commercial space for shops, and offices on the ground floor for the railway company SNCF.

Construction start date is set for 2019 with completion by 2022.

“The tower becomes a unique object in a vast urban space — the tower will not only become a destination, but also a defining public space.” —Daniel Libeskind
