no I don't think so! It really would be better to make the 2nd tower taller. If they were the same hight it would look so boring... It has to be different!
But its just my opinion...

I think same height looks majestic though... but anyway I'm fine with the taller version
When is it going to be finalised?

Sadly, I think what you've got there is the Wilkinson Eyre design for the East Tower - the idea being that the two towers, whilst different, would look related. I say sadly because I don't think that that is what Guangzhou are going to get. A 500-odd metre tall box by a different contractor / design team is what has been chosen last I heard, which is a crying shame.

Maybe someone who knows better can correct me?
