    Bonjour Monsieur Iskenderov

    Votre projet est tout simplement fabuleux. Les tours sont belles, l’emplacement est parfait. Je vous félicite de votre courage et de votre patience ! Personnellement j’aimerais bien vivre dans une de vos tours. En lisant les détails de votre projet, il me semble que vous n’avez pas prévu de proposer des appartements de petite ou moyenne surface. N’oubliez pas les célibataires et les geeks svp ! Rajoutez-nous quelques studios ou petits appartements svp Monsieur, je serais le premier à en acheter un. Bon courage !

    M. Iskenderov où en est Hermitage de la signature d’un accord avec les immeubles damiers ? Cet accord tient-il toujours?

    • Emin Iskenderov

      19 février 2015

      Vous parlez du protocole ? La signature est pour le moment bloquée par une action incompréhensible de l’église protestante de La Défense.

        Que demande cette église?
        Et n y a t-il pas une action d’une copropriétaire de Champagne?
        Des résidents du Dauphiné

          2 mars 2015

          Les discussions avec l’église protestante sont en cours et vous comprendrez qu’on ne puisse pas révéler leur contenu à ce stade.
          Par ailleurs, il est vrai qu’une copropriétaire de Champagne est en discussion avec ses autres copropriétaires sur une résolution de la dernière assemblée générale.

        Felicitations pour ce superbe projet.
        Ce blocage pourrait-il empecher le debut des travaux prevus cette année?

        • Emin Iskenderov

          2 mars 2015

          Merci pour ce soutien !
          On espère, qu’entre gens raisonnables, ce blocage ne va pas perdurer.

    Amazing project!

    People like you should be more respected for the dynamism they create in a quartier like La Défense that really needs it.
    As i was making some research on it, i saw that a hotel was suppose to be included in one of the tower, which one is it?

    In any case, good luck M Iskenderov

      Many thanks for your support!
      In the view of creating a real and new dynamism in La Défense, Hermitage Plaza will include first class hospitality-led apartements, offices, business centre, SPA and fintess centres and a five-star hotel.
      A selected luxury brand will operate the hotel, apartements and services.
      As about the hotel it will be one of the best well-known brands, but for the moment we can not reveal its name.
      We will be obviously keep you informed.
