Unfortunately, T1 appears to be completed.

Yeah , T1's crown is a big disappointment for everybody , even for those who live in paris .
However , we have to wait few months until the tower would be entirely completed to judge . For example , they are now removing cladding protection and its a lot better .

And Granite is simply superb.

T1's top is a big deception.The overall shape is quite good and elegant,but that top is too naked.

The picture above is modified, it show, the T1 tower without the windows protections in the last floor.


The tower actually, with the protection on the windows.
The window protection on the first floors have been removed.

Should be nice seeing the effect this has on the cluster when viewed from the Eiffel Tower when I go to Paris next month. I expect the curve gives La Defense more of an edge lol

Well, unfortunately you won't see much from the Eiffel Tower; T1 is pretty much hidden by Total and/or Areva from up there. But you certainly will enjoy the curve from the Arc de Triomphe.


Great pics! Love the tiny guy hung half way down the Grande Arche working on the tiles or whatever.

Oh yes, hope I get to see the Arc again. I'm going with a group from school though, so I won't get to choose where we go. I hope it's been snowing, I'm actually going in December. Snowy Paris with all the Christmas lights would be fantastic!

I think I'd prefer it without this empty crown. I know, I know... almost everyone complains about the crown, so my aim is not to make it any worse here. Just wanted to say that to me the problem is not the fact that the crown is empty. The tower looks weird probably because the colour and steal structure at the top don't suit the rest of the building. The top hardly looks like an integral part of it. Well, its form does, but not the material and colour of it.

I think we should wait until it is completed to judge it. I expect it will look better then.

I'll be the first to say it...

It doesn't look 188m tall at all.


The cladding is good.
