Here are some broad books on Paris history and architecture that can offer general context and may have more detailed information about your site.
The Grove Dictionary of Art is a seminal encyclopedia for art history. It has an excellent entry on Paris that can provide you an excellent overview on the development of the city and its art life. It also included subsections on certain major architectural works. I have scanned the chapter for your convenience (will need a Hope username and password to access).

Looking for 20th and 21st century events and developments at your site? While the library isn't strong on international newspapers, the New York Times is a globally focused publication that might be able to highlight more recent conversations. The historical archive covers 1851-2018.
