Eiffel Tower offers a better view of La Defense than Arc de Triomphe. Eiffel's vantage gives a more elongated perspective whereas the Arc vantage is more clustered.

I see 2 different issues emerging here :
1) existing skyline
2) skyline potential - ie. future projects

I don't see the point of going too much into what the future skyline may look like beyond approved and UC projects.
