This. Tour Montparnasse is a great example of a tower for the time in which it was built. They need to leave the exterior largely alone. It's vertical lines are beautiful and what makes it.

It's not only about how things look, but also how they work. The cladding of that tower is outdated and must be changed. Even old stone has to be replaced from time to time.

Guess they could've picked something that would be true to the original design and look the same, if it hadn't been disparaged by a majority of locals.

^ There are still some holes to fill in along the sidewalk on the right, and unfortunately, the feet of older towers remain anti-urban.

Otherwise, it's potentially massive. Alto and M2/Saint-Gobain (U/C on the left, 1st pic) are so important to complete the ridiculous density along. Trinity is also major to enhance the urban feel a few hundreds yards farther.

This is likely to be the biggest high-rise boulevard over the continent. I assume it's going to be walled all along like a massive canyon.
