Not a tower but the twisting spire of Chesterfield Church, Derbyshire, England is interesting.

Yes, ECB headquarters are 2 towers twisted into each other and connected (maybe siamese twin towers is the better word for it).

ThyssenKrupp Elevator is building a 246m high tower in Rottweil, a 25.000 people town 100km south of Stuttgart.
It will be a testing tower for high speed elevators. Construction has started yet. Renderings:
