too bad it is covered, it certainly does look interesting with the diagonal concrete bars
We'll see more of it soon since it's rising well now :)

Quite a bit of progress, in the last 2 months. Just would love to see these damn near as tall as the original twins.
Unfortunately if you remove the spire height it's only 300-something meters, so it's a bit far from the original twins' height.
Looks too much like the old WTC. In a way it's almost disrespectful. Also, from an architectural point of view, the twin towers weren't exactly the most beautiful buildings on the planet. If you'r going to be derivative instead of original, better to imitate something attractive, like the Petronas Towers.

Many people think WTC was more beautiful than Petronas, a poll here even shows it. It's barely under Petronas in popularity. A glass patronas would look kitsch as well.

How big is that entire construction area. It looks huge! It even continues behind those hills.
What a huge project!! Congratulation on!:cheers::cheers::master::master:
Does anyone know the height without the spires? But including the crown.
According chinese gaoloumi.com. , height to the roof is 335m, parapet 350 m, there is not crown. Antenna is 71 m. There is rumors for removal the both antennas.
