Nice buildings but don't fit there. Whole La Defence doesn't look good with that big gap in the middle. I think London does better job where to put tall buildings etc. ..so London's skyline will look fantastic in couple of years.. Paris won't match unfortunately . also Shard London bridge will be probably best looking skryscaper in EU if not in the world.

completely opposite, there few beautiful designs of London skyscrapers that are being built, however the city planning is still messy, while La Defense in Paris is well-thought, with decent composition (thou i don't like particular towers much)

Yes. The highest of the Cuatro Torres is 250m, so the Tours Hermitage are 73m taller.

Edit: You are referring to these, right?

Eiffel had a permit for the tower to stand for 20 years, meaning it would have had to be dismantled in 1909, when its ownership would revert to the City of Paris. The City had planned to tear it down (part of the original contest rules for designing a tower was that it could be easily demolished) but as the tower proved valuable for communication purposes, it was allowed to remain after the expiration of the permit.

The other day, it occurred to me that the towers seem to be designed for the best views possible: the broad sides at the top face the City, and the rest of La Defense, but at the bottom, they face the plaza between the towers and up and down the Seine, and the middle section has fairly equal views all around. Good for sales, I think!

It looks f*cking awful. Don't ever build it! Twin towers are passé anyway. Why Paris of all places would even consider ruining their skyline is beyond me.
