^Are they afraid of it being taken down by earthquakes?

Almost seems the towers are being constructed a little closer than the rendering shows. I'm assuming it's an illusion.

hi Island,

Yes, it is an optical illusion I think the following pic makes for a better comparison to the render.

this is great! it let me think about the Madrid towers but then connected. i think we can expect more of this kind of extra ordinary buildings all over the world in the future.

how long will it take before the real connection?

its defying gravity! I think i looks more complex than it really is though. Like the section thats connected is 50 % structural and 50% usable space. This is awesome to see getting built!!!
