nice but the towers could do with losing the glass tops, which totally destroy the primary concept of the towers.

^I hope it will be built, but not the height is 175 metre because it's obvious it will ruin the Istanbul skyline and can be seen very easily from historical part. In my opinion, first one must be at least 130 - 140 metre.

Actually, all the towers in Levent can be seen easily from the historical places, right ? Do they ruin the historical parts ? I think no.

If I am not mistaken, there is a hill between historical places and the place where these ones will be built, right ? We should learn it's height to make right decisions.
