The highest in La Défense are the "Total tower" (Oil company - 190m, 184m to the structure roof):



and the "Areva tower" (nuclear power and electricity transmission & distribution company - 190m, 184m to the structure roof):



Then, you'll find the "Gan tower" (Insurance company - 179m):



So the two new tower will be respectively #3 and #4 highest in La Défense.


The highest tower in Paris is the Montparnasse tower (210m):



We also have a useless steel structure (320m high), called the Eiffel tower:



You can see La Défense in the background.

Beautiful towers. They'll fit in very well with Paris' glassy, elegant skyline.

Although Madrid is building skyscrapers more tallers, Paris has a better skyline. Nice City.

Well, there's about 6km (4 miles) between them.

The Eiffel tower is not that useless.

First, you get TV thanks to it (+ cell phone + radio...)
Second, tourists spend their money to see it
