The towers are impresswive but skyline looks bad IMO cause it looks like four lonely stings. I think it could looks better if each tower has different height, for example: 180, 210, 240, 280.

Discovery Channel says it is twisting, but it looks just a 1/4(maybe 1/8) circle and a vertical ramp from one side of the building...

Nice pictures.

I would not call it a twist as 2 corners of the building go up straight.

The great advantage of this location between lowrises seems to me that you can make great pictures from these beauties from almost everywhere.

The design of each tower is great, but I agree they should be a bit more different in height.
Hopefully in the future some new towers with different height will be built.
