There'll be a good 90 meters difference between Generali Tower and the new Axa Tower, whereas on your rendering the height difference is much less than that.

PS: Try again let's see how it looks.

Ah, you beat me by a few seconds. Lol. I, too, tried to make modifications
on your rendering, and this is what I get (I left T1 Tower under construction):

Towers D2, new Aurore and Majunga could be seen in the skyline by then imo...if they ever get built eventually.

Hey Cyril, since we're doing this, can you also add a 300 m. tower at the Rose de Cherbourg interchange, so we can see how it would look ? Just add any nondescript tower to get an idea. That's where the "tour Signal" will be located. I put an arrow on the rendering to show the location of the Rose de Cherbourg.

I also think the tour Phare is not in its correct location. I put another arrow to show where it should be located.

No reply from Cyril. Well, as the French saying goes, on n'est jamais aussi bien servi que par soi-même, so here's a new rendering where I made the changes suggested above. Note that the tour signal, whose design is still unknown, should be approximately as tall as the tour phare, but on my rendering it appears slightly taller, because it is located in the foreground of La Défense, whereas tour phare is more in the background.

For an idea of dimensions, I added on the rendering the proposed London Bridge Tower and Frankfurt's already built Commerzbank Tower (towards the center of the cluster) at their exact scale.

And LBT will be taller than that when compared to Generali. Unless of course Generali is in the foreground in comparison

I agree with Newcastle.

Eh Brisavoine LTB is 310m tall.

LBT is slightly in the background, yes, due to the curving of the Circular Boulevard.

LBT is rightly proportioned here (LBT's observation deck is slightly above the base of Generali's central spire). The problem is with the spires of the Generali Tower which Cyril did not rightly proportion. The spires on the edges of the tower are too big.

Anyway, here are Generali Tower and LBT standing side by side at exact same scale, from SSP:
