Jex, are those spot lights meant to sparkle like on Eiffel Tower?

If so, that 'd be some treat to the eye and a show in LD by night. I hope the answer is yes.

Hi Charlotte,

No, it won't be the same lighting scheme than that of the Tour Eiffel because it's a registered trademark (just like its paint color besides), therefore, it only belongs to the Dame de Fer.

Although the following video is 5 years old, D2's lighting scheme might look like this : HERE

It's likely to be beautiful at night though...

Hey Jex,

Oh really? I didn't know that fact about la Tour Eiffel though

Oh wow, that lighting effect is simply dazzling and so beautiful to look at. This is going to be another trend setter as most French buildings have done.

Thank you for sharing

Let's remain careful though, like I said, the video dates from 2007 & some changes might have been made since...

Having said that, if you look at post #197, the lights appear to be LED lights (& as far as I remember, the author of all those pics, Spoudzzi, had confirmed it to me a few weeks ago), so, the final result might look like that visible in the video, time will tell...

Now, I can't wait for the core & steel to rise...

Nice one. La Defense needs more unique towers like this one considering the relatively huge number of bland boxes in its skyline.

I like the boxes, (Areva is my favourite) but yes, unique shapes are good too.
