Installation of the Inicty tower spire by helicopter

The last two components of the Incity Tower spire were put in place by helicopter on Sunday 21 June. This metallic spire, which measures 50 metres and weighs 25.9 tonnes, took the building to its final height of 200 metres. This confirms its position as the highest tower in Lyon and the third highest in France. Three aerial beacons and a lightning rod will now be placed at the top.

Fantastic! I hope you go to the event friton and catch some photos to post for us! I see you are from Lyon. This must be very exciting as the numbers of towers there is not so "high"!

Postcards from Lyon: A changing skyline
euronews.com | 24.11.2015

Euronews’ Seamus Kearney reported: “Lyon’s known for its beautiful sights but there are also some great bird’s-eye views.

“And it’s at the lookout beside Notre Dame de Fourvière that you can really see the changing skyline of Lyon.”
A tower shaped liked a pencil used to be the highest in Lyon, but now there is one even taller, at 200 metres. The new Incity tower is in a business district called Part Dieu, where there’s a major railway station and redevelopment is underway.

Albert Constantin, co-architect of the Incity tower, told Postcards: “Now that a certain number of towers have sprung up, the district needs to be developed, above all to make Part Dieu lively and not just for business, with housing, shops, culture, and of course offices.
“Incity is like a symbol of the new Part Dieu area.”
