The new rendering seems to look the same to me like the old design, but on the top of the higher tower i can see an Antenna or spire now...i don't really like that, esp. if it's only meant to increase the height of the tower.
Btw, i really hope that this two Towers will get built (with or without antenna , because the design is great and it surely would look great in the Donaucity-cluster, so i hope that construction will start eventually, but it was already announced so many times and delayed so many times, that i almost don't believe anymore that DC towers will get built in the near future...

You're right, there is one antenna on that rendering. Still, this picture is not an official one. So I don't think there will be an antenna on the top.
But increasing the height of builduings is a good thing...
I still believe those towers will be built. Just don't know when.

WOW,these towers have been proposed since early 2005,and with the economy the way it is,it may take several more years before we see construction begin.

Looks like the DC towers got delayed again:

Ursprünglich hätte das Hotel in den höchsten Wolkenkratzer Österreichs (den 230 Meter hohen DC-Tower) einziehen sollen. Der Turm geht allerdings nicht (wie geplant) in diesem Sommer in Bau: „Es ist die Krise dazwischengekommen“, erklärt Thomas Jakoubek, Geschäftsführer der WED (sie ist seitens der Stadt für die Entwicklungen der Donaucity zuständig). Im Herbst soll entschieden werden, wann der Bau startet. Im Raum steht laut Jakoubek derzeit eine Verschiebung von „ein bis zwei Jahren“.(...)"

Basically the article says that the hotel operator refuses from the plans, and that there might be a delay of 1-2 years.

In a few months they want to start to build the bigger one. It should be finished in 2012. The smaller is still on hold.
