Issy isn't so far out actually. It'll certainly leave a stance on the cityscape of the central arrondissements even for its sole height. It clutters the skyline as well. Unnecessarily imho (same goes for the idiotic Pyramid).

Not to mention that it's virtually right next to the lovely Seine river.

Insisting that LD is ok but Issy is not is either uninformed, cognitive dissonance or downright trolling.

If you look in GMaps, you can see that the distance between Paris city centre as defined by Google (from city hall and not the nearby Notre-Dame which is the official point zero) to the Nexity tour in LD is about 8.3 km.

The distance between the same spot and the location of the Issy towers project is 8.1 km in a straight line. Enough said...

I wouldn't be so much bothered if they would plan to build some news towers in the "front de seine" area, along with some recladding and extensions. The main issue of this district is the ground implantation (so 70's) and the height uniformity. Add 4/5 towers between 150 and 220 m to break uniformity, recladd the ugliest towers, make the ground pedestrian friendly and this area will be as good as let's say canary dwarf

Speaking of these new towers, i like the way they complete each other, despite being OK tower; not ugly , not realy beautiful. But let's remember that a 3rd one is expected just next to it (with a shape close to the libieskind tower in Warshaw), along with triangle tower. In the area, the tower of the ministry of defence, and the Bouygues tower are already there. So a cluster may merge in some years.

I would have been a better strategy to build in font de seine because this area has a great potential. But i won't spit on these new projects

That's not the point. La Defense is a designated skyscraper area. Either you develop clusters or you spread them all across the urban area. Latter makes the place look messy. Thus un-Parisian.

Issy is another business architecture cluster; it just didn't have anything tall yet. Developing another extra-muros cluster seems like exactly the Parisian thing to do. It's not like the need for office space will suddenly drop, so that we can forget about towers for a while.

Not a massive fan of the Seine mini-cluster here, so I'm unsure on the idea of adding some new towers to it. It is visible from the North & North-Eastern elevated vantage points (Sacre-Coeur, Pere-Lachaise) but because of the distance it barely registers so it's not a big problem. However I think new & tall additions would be better off further away in locations such as Issy and Meudon... But I haven't given much thought to it.

If they develop 1 (in words: one) cluster at Issy it's all fine. It could be a little further out, but well. The problem is when suddenly all across the Parisian urban area such standalones/solitaire towers pop up, that'd be horrible (like that imho fugly Pyramid).
Develop 3-5 proper clusters with good architecture, in a distance that pays respect to classical neighbourhoods and the Parisian center (8-12km out) - and everything's fine.

It's called urban planning for a reason.

These tower is outside of the city of Paris. Myself, I don't see a problem. All planned towers are like medieval towers/gates on entry in city
