A belt of high-rise isn't desirable either. Don't want to end up in a situation where, if you're in center Paris, you'll have to see highrises no matter which direction you're looking at.

But you won't, because if you are in the center of paris, you are surrounded by 7 storeys buildings, so you can't see anything.

Alright, that's partially true. What about the view from the rooftops? From Montmartre? From Arc de Triomphe? The Pantheon? The Arab World institue? and so on?

Do we want to see this but with a barrier of towers in the background? I don't.

Or this?

The nice thing about Paris is how from many points of view you see this endless ocean of buildings with nothing that pops out besides the Eiffel tower and some chuch towers and dome.

That being said they likely took the diagrams from a skyscraper website like skyscraperpage and I doubt they asked for permission.
