There's something about this twins that just don't do it for me. I thinks its that combination of green and blue glass and concrete on the main facade. I really wanna see the final result.

Am assuming you're talking about the World Trade Center. If so, these need another 6 months to be completed. At the moment it looks nice but there is a lot of concrete and the facade I'd say is 40% complete. It'll look much nicer come year end especially with those wind turbines.

I prefer the Bahrain WTC to the Financial Harbour. The shapes of those towers would be great enough, but the wind turbines, the highest and possibly the largest in the world, make it even more exciting. Like the skybridge was to the Petronas, they will be the memorable signature of the complex.
