Front de Seine
Front de Seine (also known as Beaugrenelle) is a district in Paris, France, located along the river Seine in the 15th arrondissement right at the South of the Eiffel Tower. It is with the 13th arrondissement and La Défense, one of the districts hosting the most highrise buildings in the Paris area.

Description
The Front de Seine district is the result of an urban planning project from the 1970s. It includes about 20 towers reaching nearly 100 meters of height built all around an elevated espalanade. That esplanade is paved with frescos that can only be seen from the elevated floors of the towers. As opposed to Italie 13, the design of the towers is much more varied. The Hôtel Novotel Paris-Tour Eiffel (formerly known as Hôtel Nikkō), for instance, has red-encircled windows while the Tour Totem consists of a stack of several glassed-blocks. Furthermore, while 13th arrondissement towers are predominantly residential and La Défense towers are predominantly commercial, the towers from the Front de Seine are of mixed commercial and residential use.
