Rising fast at the heart of Paris' La Défense, Unibail Rodamco's Trinity has continued its rapid ascent, the tower now nearly halfway to its 32-storey height. Straddling a busy roadway, the project has been built atop a raised platform connected to the street grid below via a series of concrete staircases and an elevator - all of which were built in preparation for the current project.

Designed by Crochon Brullmann + Associés, Trinity will eventually be clad in a glass curtain wall, the tower and podium base to add a considerable amount of public realm improvements to the area.

To be housed primarily within the double-height ground floor, a planned 500 square-metre retail space will open onto a 3,500 square-metre new public space in the form of an outdoor terrace.

At 32 storeys, the 49,500 square-metre office complex will represent a sizable development for the area, Trinity itself having replaced a relatively small office block which once sat upon the site.
