I think that the Eiffel Tower is more the exception that confirms the rule
It almost impossible to build a tower that perfectly suits to Paris like Eiffel Tower does. Moreover, it's not a skyscraper.

The other tower that you talk about is the Montparnasse Tower. It is not a big success and this tower is hated by the parisians. This is one of the reason why no towers were built in the center since 1970.
But i totally support the bulding of skycrapers in areas outside the center of Paris. Just not in the very city center. And let's not even talk about incredible Rome. I hope i will never see any skyscrapers there.

In cities like Warsaw, Frankfurt or even London it is totally different as they don't have such historical city centers. This allows more liberty about modern buildings.

What do you think about Istanbul? It is as historical as Rome yet there are a lot of skyscrapers. I ask difficult questions, don't I ?

Unfortunately i have never been to Istanbul yet... So i don't really know what to think about it, it's difficult to judge only with pictures posted here.
I guess the center is also very old and historical. But there are no skyscrapers is the center, right?

No there are not. There is only Galata Kulesi(The Tower of Christ/Christea Turris) in Galata district.







This is the tallest building in the historical city center and its height is only 67 m, it is 700 years old. I guess they didn't care about height restrictions back then

The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 while the Haussmannian buildings were built during the Second Empire (1852-1870) : almost the same period.

And for the Tour Montparnasse, I would say more than 95% of the parisians totally hate this tower.
Some people even say : "The Tour Montparnasse is the best point of view in Paris because it is the only place where you can't see it.

This is the problem when you have already a perfect city, it is very hard to make new things, you can lose the perfection and the Parisians saw it with Montparnasse
By the way, the tower is now "accepted", the point of view from the Jardins du Luxembourg is ... interesting .
