Tour First is an office skyscraper in Courbevoie, in La Défense, the business district of the Paris metropolitan area.
The tower was built in 1974 by Bouygues for the UAP insurance company. The building was 159 m at that time. Its ground shape was in the form of a three-pointed star whose branches were separated each by a 120° angle. This particular shape was chosen to symbolize the merger of the three French insurance companies that were at the origin of UAP. The tower was renamed Tour AXA when UAP was bought by the AXA insurance company in 1996.
