I really like the design of this tower, especially the top. Tower gives me a feeling of elegance, wellfare and luxe.

The tower will replace a lowrise building named Immeuble Iris, built 1983.

I'd like it much more without the cone/pyramid, I think it throws the idea of the tower itself off, Better with nothing or maybe smaller antennas on the corners or something, but the "pyramid" looks to me like an obvious afterthought.

I don't think this building fit's well in Paris.
I don't like the point on top of it. And it's gonna be visible from the entire city. Really bad design.
