Built in 1974, the tower is 184 m (604 feet) tall. It is the second-tallest skyscraper in La Défense and the third-tallest skyscraper in Île-de-France.

Tour Areva is entirely black; its cladding is made of dark granite and darkened window. Its shape is that of a perfect square prism. It is said that its architects were inspired by the black monolith in Stanley Kubrick's movie " A Space Odyssey".
