I've created renderings showing the "tour signal" in the skyline of Paris. You can see them in the Paris - Full Summary of Projects thread:

Could you add T1, New AXA and Granite to have the complete skyline (even if we know that more towers will be annouced soon)

No less than 15 towers (well even if most of them are really short now) will be demolished and rebuilt (sometimes 40% taller or more).

It's very hard because I don't have renders showing new AXA, T1, and Granite from this particular angle. In any case, all of them are placed on the view from Notre Dame which you haven't quoted here.

Nice render about the Tour Signal, the entrace is very modern and is like a piece of art.

Can we petition to change the tower?
At least hide the top? Cover it up? Add the extra 30 meters?
Anything but this mess

It's like a fat guy sitting, with a bad haircut. At least if they put a dome on it, they could make him bald and proud, instead of trying to cover it up like Trump

Now look at this cheap attempts, way better

The top does indeed disturb me.

@Sanchez: The building is evaluated at 800 million €. If that's cheap to you...

@3tmk: No, your version isn't possible for the simple reason that there are wind turbines at the top of the structure. We can see them well on the rendering you've posted. The top remains my own real problem with the building though.

that's why we get rid of those wind turbines and put them in the middle of the Grande Arche

Well, here's an idea that just popped in my head in 5 minutes... what do you think of it ?

Well of course, it's quickly made, but it's late and I want to sleep!

it's better, but if we had to leave the space open, I would have prefered some serious onimous gothic spikes, something sharp, big, like claws, a la 2IFC, but basically broader than this wussy tower

If you re-read post #264 in the Paris - Full Summary of Projects thread, you'll understand what he means. In a nutshell, 17 towers/buildings will be demolished and rebuilt. 8 or 9 will be demolished before 2013, and the remaining 8 or 9 will be demolished between 2013-2020. The Iris Building, which will be demolished and replaced by the Generali Tower, is the first of these 17 towers/buildings to go.
