Now that's a cladding, this scraper really needed a major refit.

Almost yes, but small pikes will be added to the spire, so officially not topped out

I never really liked La Defense. I hate it when older cities try to gain a modern skyline. It always thought it clashed. One of the pics above changed my mind. La Defense and Paris look perfect together. Congrats on the building!

A nice design indeed although the actual cladding disappointed many. Good for La Defense to get something else than a flat roof.

the tower is yet another example how renderings can be deceiving. compared to the pictures the result is disappointing indeed.

depends, I personally hated the whole design at the beginning and thought they better stayed with the old one, but after the part of cladding has been installed I'm really starting to like the whole project
