^Agree. The East Tower should be the same height in order to look the best as twin towers. If not, there shouldn't be more than 10m in difference.

Wait for more similar names like . . .

- World Financial Center (WFC)
- World Business Center (WBC)
- World Commercial Center (WCC)
- World Trade Center (WTC)
- International Trade Center (ITC)
- International Business Center (IBC)
- International Commercial Center (ICC)

BACK TO THE TOPIC:

Just look at those cranes at the background. That is just too many.

If there are more than 50m difference, then they wouldn't be twin towers anymore! So at most 10m difference is best for twin towers.

I know that the top right tower is being built in Didang new city in China; would be great if they build the other towers as well, they look great!

Very I-robot/Star Wars/Trek, have a very sci-fi look to them. Imagine if they all do get built.
