Are these two connected towers in the 2nd pic a real project?

WORK-OF-ART!!! Though not the tallest, certainly one of the best designs out there.

It's so fun to watch China grow its infrastructure at the speed it's currently going.

i am so happy they ended with this design, it is by far the best comparing it to all proposals they had before.

i am also interested in the twin towers. in one picture a few posts above mine:


you can see they are connected, on others they are not, if they connect them it will be crazy.
