Stunning design. One of my favourites, alongside the Shanghai Tower

Those new renders look minging! Probably cost cutting measures brought in but they haven't improved the aesthetics at all!

I reckon not, looks like it has a lot less soar...

I was never that impressed with this tower before, but now...

Even if it is a supertall still, with signal's situation, Parisians had better pray that phare and hermatige will deliver the goods, or else what was looking like a pretty decent skyline might end up looking a tad dumbed down...still cool tho

Eurgh i kno! The cladding!

That was the best bit of the old design, and also the spikes at the top (which tbh i didnt like all that much) look like they've been lopped off so that they are around the same size, which means they are no longer a striking part of the desgin. The building now looks kinda stumpy and squat on the skyline. Things have gone from bad to worse with generali!

This building rocks! It's not a large pile of curves, waves and poles that intimidates viewers like most supertalls right now, but is a simple shiny block with trees!

I thought it looked shorter. The spire looks quite strange now, it might be the thickness, or maybe it's not centered anymore?

I'm French. It's really useful to decrease the height of a tower here. We have laws about we can't build towers which are taller than 300m. But many towers will be supertall ones. Wait any months to see them decreasing...

That's wrong, in La Défense there is no height limit.

There were law to build more than 300m building. If you know La Défense, you know that no tower surpasses 300m...
