Those are damn beautiful.

It would look even more so if they weren't twisty.

BTW, this 1/4 turn twisting is more the kind of twist that I wish the Fordham Spire had been proposed with in Chicago.. Instead, its twist is 3/4, which makes the building look too contrived imo.

It seems like this design also is inspired by Turning Torso!

The tower appears in excess of 300 meters, I think the shorter one of the twins is 300+ meters and the taller one is probably nearing 400 meters. Awsome loving it, go Istanbul!.

Yes you are right, Nowadays there is an anti-skyscraper campaign here, So they can't explain the project's height (I think). Because if it has 105 storey, it will be minimum 350 metres. For example IsbankTower (52 floors) is 181m. So we can estimate this twin's heights.

No, It's not. I dont know what happened to it but I can say The Empires Tower project is really fantastic and it will never build.

These towers look really aweomse. I like the new twisting style. It's like the new milleniums flatiron design.
