Shame. I preferred it as it was. The render of the renovated tower makes it look so generic, although I can't fault a height increase.

The new cladding and shape of this tower will be fresh and modern , so glad to see it being renovated , the best skylines of EU so far , I love the density of LD , waiting to see a few 300m towers in the future !

^Great updates, thanks.

I'm not quite sure about the new design though. From some angles it looks awesome, from others less so. Certainly not bad though, not bad at all.

I looked at the tower's French Wikipedia article and the Tour AXA had been given a new name as of September 2008: the Tour First. Is this news even true?

I don't like these recladings. I wish we can keep those old towers. But anyway the new building is awesome though.

I always liked the Tour Axa as it used to be, but the new design is also good. Thank you for the updates guys.

No, they still haven't.
But the top is beginning to grow up.

Update from the website www.defense-92.fr/

Seems to be quite the undertaking... the new design looks nice, and a height increase is cool. Interesting seeing buildings modified instead of flattened and rebuilt...
