The latest ruling should clear the way for construction to begin on the 180 metre high tower. The developer, Unibail-Rodamco, intends to begin construction in 2020 with completion prior to the Olympics in 2024.
The project has not been without its roadblocks. Herzog & de Meuron first revealed their design for the skyscraper in 2008, with the building set for an initial completion in 2014. But since its first conception, the 42-storey tower has faced numerous delays.
Planning rules in Paris were recently relaxed, and the Tour Triangle is part of a collection of towers rising above 100 metres outside the La Defence business district. After the Tour Montparnasse was completed in 1973, a ban of buildings over seven storeys high was introduced.
The Tour Triangle will contain a 120-room hotel and office space for 5000 people, as well as a health centre and a day care.
