If built, they will be the 11th (and 12th? since they are twins) tallest skyscrapers in North America wooho!

As for the residential/office twin buildings (the diamond ones), there was a World Trade Center proposal finalist that looked exactly the same. I'll try to find it.

Yup, these designs would have looked totally out of place in Lower Manhattan.

I do not think that's a swimming pool. My guess is, that is an aquarium.

They're in the process of building a giant aquarium 1 block south of this so I'd be surprised if this were another one. Isn't that a roof deck patio up there?

I love those magnificent twins, they remind me of Hermitage Plaza's. I'm really looking forward to seeing them rising.

That's because this movie takes place over 250 years into the future. You can compare it to a Londoner from 1770 visiting the city today.
