Completed in 1973, this skyscraper rises 210 meters (689 feet) above the city, making it one of the tallest buildings in the French capital. It was designed by architects Eugène Beaudouin, Urbain Cassan, and Louis Hoym de Marien. It faced a resistance to its construction due to its impact on the city’s traditional skyline.
