The Delivery of EMBLEM Tower
The Emblem Tower, previously known as Tour Cèdre (“Cedar Tower”), has just been delivered in the La Défense district, in Paris.
This project, designed with the JLL Wand Architecture teams and undertaken by PETIT on behalf of Redtree & Invesco, consists of the heavy refurbishment of the existing tower, including the design of its new facades by RFR Structure & Envelope. The high-rise building, over 100 meters high, displays a new contemporary design thanks in particular to the undulations of the large-sized panels made from ultra-high-performance fiber-reinforced concrete. This material offers a large number of advantages such as an exceptional durability over time.
The rooftop created by the project, currently under development, offers a new living space for its users and a panoramic view over the whole of La Défense.
Even before being delivered, the project was named one of the four finalists for the 2021 Pierres d'Or prize!
