Didn't the Opus 12 Tower have the same facade as the Tour Atlantique before its reconstruction? If so, I would have the Tour Atlantique reclad with a glass curtain wall.

Yes it was, but I don't know see anything about a recladd of Atlantic tower.
To be honest I don't really hope a recladd of this tower for the diversity of the district.

I'm not sure I understand what I'm seeing on the Axa pictures...
Are they taking off the concrete blocks from the top of the tower?
Or adding them?
It seems like they have stripped off the whole top floor. Or maybe not?

If you look at the rendering you'll find out the top is becoming progressive, the top spire raising above and more of the structure is eightened however a small part seems to lose height. So maybe they removed parts of the last floor to start back.

I think I understand now
They have stripped bare the, otherwise hollow, top technical floors
I think they are taking off those concrete blocks, not adding anything. I doubt they can add any height before having the lower third part ready
Especially that with the new cladding, I think they will have to take out those concrete vertical lines from the entire tower.

It's really interesting

Well personally, I tend to believe all those new gray rectangles are rather bland. I'm disappointed. I would have appreciate if architects had been more imaginative.

Me too I would like to know where this photo was taken from. It's by far the best viewpoint of La Défense's skyline I have seen.
I am sure one of the French forumer could do a nice render with this picture by replacing the bland grey boxes by the real proposals (I am myself unable to do such a job...)
