Tour Europlaza (previously known as tour Septentrion) is an office skyscraper located in La Défense business district situated west of Paris, France.

Built in 1972, the tower of 135 meters of height belongs to the second generation of skyscrapers in La Défense. The tower distinguishes itself from the other towers of that period thanks to a less boxy design and an original cladding. The tower was originally named Septentrion because of its northern location in the business district (Septentrion meaning North in French).
