CMA CGM Tower
The CMA CGM Tower is a 147m tall skyscraper in Euroméditerranée, the central business district of Marseille, France. Designed by Zaha Hadid, it will be the headquarters for CMA CGM, a major shipping firm, consolidating 2000 employees currently spread over 7 sites. Zaha Hadid was selected to design the building in November 2004. It is intended to interact with other landmarks of the city including the Château d'If and the basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde, which stands taller than the tower on a rocky outcrop. Built by Vinci subsidiary GTM Construction, the building has 20 lifts to service its 33 floors and is due for completion in late 2010.
