Winds can be quite strong at 500 m above ground. So I think this is a good thing.

I don't think uneven twins are a problem here. You just need supertalls on both sides of that corridor to balance the skyline.

Hmmm i usually prefer roundish type of building rather than square shaped towers...and the cladding of the missile-shaped IFC is more appealing to me...even if the tower is a bit less tall

I suppose. But who minds a little wind with an unobstructed view like that?
