I know Paris very well, but I don't like Phare neither.
After T1, the next BIG failure? Hope it will be cancelled finally, but I don't count on it.
Paris/La Defense deserves better towers. Fortunately, there are beautiful towers like new AXA, GAN and Generali in sight!

People who say this tower is going to be a "scar on the face of Paris" must be deluded! Paris has its historic centre which is highly organized and beautiful which is miles from the are this tower is destined to be. What is admirable about the city is its planning, not only can it facilitate the construction of skyscrapers in a central business district, but also protect its historic buildings. Many other cities, in my opinion explicitly being London, can learn from Paris's intelligent system where historic buildings and modern office/residential towers can co-exist. Consequently, this tower will undoubtedly be a beautiful addition to the city.
Remember no historic buildings are being demolished, hence there is no loss, only gain!
