I forgot who mentioned that the towers look like Teddy and Nina doing *something. I hate that idea but it was so funny... that I just can't stop myself thinking of that whenever I see a photo of the towers!

LMAOO!!! Yes, I see it too!! Especially with "Teddy" being the taller tower and "Nina" being the shorter tower and the skybridge connecting the two towers LOL!! I'll leave it at that and the rest will be left for your imagination.

Anyhoot, here's some pics that I'm not sure have been posted or not yet.

Looks nice !

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

the tower is hideous... i was so excited seeing the renderings, if built likt that, would really have looked great. instead it's messy facade, and sheer bulk makes it look disgusting. ew.

It seems there's still much to be done (especially at the top). When will it be finished?

yea
the facade is chaotic ...
too many different treatments on teddy ...

i can see at least 5 here ...
its aesthetically unpleasing ...

nina looks better ... but the skybridge is distroying it ...

the 2 towers dun really go well together ...
the curves dun resemble each other ...

and i can't understand wats going on at the top ... and at the base ...
