Looking good! Am I right in thinking its height is up by about 20m now? Another 30 to go, then, to pass Tour Montparnasse...


Wouldn't it be interesting if Montparnasse itself were to be rebuilt in the same manner?

Hmm intresting cladding. Some of it is very nice (the round corner part) but the rest is "meh". I hope the top part will be better.

I went inside the First Tower yesterday (I am working for the company who build this tower).

Some pictures I have taken of the tower, and of the view from the 49th floor (last floor and still under construction)

A great visit !

I don't think so. From what I've read before it still has a long way to go before it tops out.

Yes, I understood it. That's why I said «I don't think so».

The CB21 Tower in one of the photos is being renovated into a HGE (France's version of LEED) -certified green building without any height extensions. The project to extend the height to 275 metres has been abandoned.
