Actually, the diagram that you posted (which I am the author of ), is the old diagram when we didn't know the exact height of the Hermitage Towers.

Here is the current diagram with the real height of the towers, 337 meters.

Thank you for makeing them but your not right. This comparison shows that the real towers are 337m tall but they are 323m tall. You had to place them slopes then then they are 337m tall.

Towers are counter from ground level. If from the ground level to the top the height is 337m then it's right. If the correct height is 323m then 337m is wrong. That's something we can't determine until the towers are factually built.

Very good design for La Defense

OMG! I LOVE THESE twin towers for La Defence. I 'd love to see a few more of such towers around LD, Paris.

but to me personally, Eiffel Tower was/is/will always the most beautiful tower ever built on this planet!
