How many "Twin Towers" are there in the world?

Only I know are The Petronas and the WTC.

Must be more out there.

Wembley Stadium (formerly the Empire Stadium), London, England, had twin towers prior to redevelopment. Now it's got a big f***-off arch.

It was every football/Rugby League fans dream to watch their team play in a final under the twin towers. The town of Widnes, Lancashire, England offered to take Wembley's twin towers to make them the main feature of a planned Rugby League museum on the banks of the River Mersey, alas to no avail.

We have the Atlantis East and West towers here on the Gold Coast. Nothing special.

37st, 110m


Darling Park(Sydney) 30st, 126m



City Tower and Melbourne Tower apartments are twins. 37st, 122m.

Sorry, can't find a pic with both, but they both look like this:

Built in 1975 in Rotterdam, the 93 m. high Europoint towers. No twin, but triplette towers:

.

There are more twin and over towers in Rotterdam, but they're all residential towers 106 meters high or lower.

Sabancı Twins, Istanbul (158m,140m)


Metrocity Residental Towers, Istanbul (143m, 143m)


Tekstilkent Istanbul, (178m each)


Akmerkez Tower 1,2 (65m,76m) / and at the back their brother Akmerkez 3 (100m) Istanbul


Dikmen Valley Towers - Ankara
the ones at the middle, they also have a twin at back makin four. (140 m each)




And also in Istanbul there are more smaller twins, even I do not know the name of them.
