Could Paris be finally breaking with the 59s, only to make the mistakes of the 60s?
This article provides an interesting take on the new skyscrapers appearing in Paris. Perhaps the allure of the modern might not translate into profit, and at the same time compromise the advantages the city has to offer - especially with a 7% vacancy rate that makes tall buildings redundant.
Interestingly, London's strategy to date has been to corral height to clusters like Bishopsgate, Canary Wharf and (soon to be) Old Oak Common, around transport hubs. Other successful cities like Japan have similar density pockets around transport. Yet Paris either fails to understand, or ignores* these more modern approaches to tall buildings, in its attempt to catch up...
*La Defence was an early attempt to corral height, and is often seen as a planning failure. For different reasons, sure (like inhuman scaled city blocks and walks), but nevertheless, all ideas it espouses are equally tainted, including tall building quarters.
