Front de Seine

Front de Seine, Paris 15

A district of Paris located along the river Seine in the 15th district just south of the Eiffel Tower. It is, with the 13th district, one of the few districts in the city of Paris containing high-rise buildings.

 

Front de Seine is the result of an urban planning project from the 70’s.  It includes about 20 towers reaching nearly 100 m of height built all around an elevated esplanade. As opposed to Italie 13, the design of the towers is much more varied. Hotel Novotel Paris-Tour Eiffel (formerly known as Hotel Nikko), for instance, has red-encircled windows, while the Tower Totem consists of a stack of several glassed-blocks.
