Do the reconstruction plans of the AXA Tower include demolishing the upper 5 floors of a wing of the tower?

Yes, partially. The building is in 3 wings. The top of the southern wing will be slightly demolished to make appear a sloping roof on 5 floors, the top of Northeast wing will be slightly heightened with another sloping roof on 5 floors, and the Northwest wing will be heightened even more. As a result, the three wings, which currently ends at the same height, will all end at a different height.

Here is the scheme from Angelius which pictures well the nature of the visual changes on the structure:

A small "Before-After" of the restructuration.



The crane will be assembled entirely in a month according to the planning.

Welcome to Skyscrapercity Minuteman!

Nice shot! Actually, it's quite amazing to see that 200-meter crane standing up this way. I know it's fixed on the tower, but still, I wonder how feels the crane operator in his cabin so high in the sky!

Its a great idea! It looks like a new tower.
nice job Paris.

it reminds me of a London proposal "Bishopgate" ...is it true that it's the same architect?
