Looks nice the bridge in the middle of the twin tower makes it look like petronas and the top looks like jin mao.

I don't like the twins, they look too much classic. The another projects are really sweet!

i like old design, new design may look better in blueplan, but they are too low, just about 200m, not like petronas.

Many great projects in Chongqing! I like the twins, exept the bridge between them that i don't find suitable for them.

Wow, they look great. Why the change? I like the new design better. How tall were they before, and now? How is the square footage compared to the old design?
