I like the Bahrain one.

I'm surprised that there are so many WTCs around the world. I thought only the Chinese like to copy American names.

Btw, which is the first WTC? NYC?

I had no idea that there was a World Trade Center company that had all these buildings. Thats what i'm getting from this. Is that a right assumption. One company comandeered building these towers?

Very cool, all these are great structures (except Dallas haha). Yea, I was shocked when I found a WTC in New Orleans, didn't know it was a global thing but that's pretty cool. Soon NYNY will once again have a beautiful complex of WTC skyscrapers.

Here's the NOLA pic, (the building in front of the Hilton with the tall antenna)

This is Portland's WTC, though it doesn't look like much.

Built : 1983
Address : cnr Flinders Street and Spencer Street
City : Melbourne

number of floors : 12

Built in the Eighties period in the Brutalist style

Notable architectural features :
The WTC, which was officially opened in 1983, is a large complex comprising 5 inter-linked office buildings with service retail on the concourse level, a 2 level temporary casino and undercover and open lot car park facilities. The 5 office buildings were originally built in 1983 and the temporary casino was constructed in 1992. The WTC has a total built-up area of 90,713 sq.m.




Early picture of the building, before the semicircle part was built


Ugly bunch of buildings, i hope it's demolished and rebuilt, taller so other buildings can be built next to it.

The photos are old, couldn't find any newer ones (dunno why you'd want to take a picture of it anyway)

The WTC in Colombo was also known for being attacked by terrorists.
