The design for the new 200-meter, 54-story Jardins de l’Arche Tower has been unveiled by Ateliers 2/3/4/. The tower will rise in Nanterre La defense, Paris and comprise 65,000 sm across three sliding, superimposed volumes.

The first volume will provide 15,000 sm of office space while the second and third volumes will contain 700 hotel rooms. However, these rooms will be split between three different hotel complexes.

The second volume will comprise 300 rooms operating under the Holiday Inn brand. The third volume will have 400 rooms total, split evenly between the Staybridge Suits and Crowne Plaza brands. The Staybridge Suites hotel will have the bottom 200 floors in the volume while the Crowne Plaza occupies the top 200. Each hotel has its own double height lobby at each volume interface that is extended by a garden terrace overlooking the city.

A belvedere sits atop the three volumes providing views of the surrounding city and is open to the general public or can be booked for private events. Other amenities include a conference center, swimming pool, panoramic restaurant, fabrication lab, and fitness center.

The tower, scheduled for completion in 2022, is hoping to achieve LEED Gold certification and BREEAM Excellent.
