Since they are joined at the top it's counted as one building, while other twin towers are counted as two, so even though it's just as difficult to build, in terms of bragging rights this will cause one less supertall for China.

can't wait to see it's connecting the towers soon. also i don't think it will take much more time to be topped out. few months or so if it stays with a good construction speed
