These buildings are not connected at the base so they should rename as separate database entries.

What is the source for the other information?

My experience with this Bank CEF more than 10 years when I had a saving account at CEF in younger ages. Although both North West Tower and South East Tower seems not be connected at street level, appears two blocks, they are connected in 2 basement floors at garage, when the construction of all complex was done in same time. The South Tower has more information and sources in Web because the importance of CEF Bank and TRF spread in one tower, while the north tower has several small business offices without too many information as source to input here.

If you want to put both towers in different entries like WTC in NYC, it is ok to me, but i do not have much info about the north tower. Both are equal blocks of green curtain windows and concrete with 25 floors + 2 basement floors connected.

I found only this information with an office use type at north tower, a small law administration office called ADVOGADOS MALHEIROS in middle lower area part of the site.

On the photo of north tower you see the south tower, a piece on right corner of the photo and on the left the FUNCEF tower, both south tower and funcef direct at Av. Paulista. The north tower has pass to streets like Al. Ministro Rocha Azevedo and Rua Frei Caneca.Funcef building was afterwards built and I will request in another entry.

These two are seperate towers despite if they may share a usage. These towers will remain a seperate entry as they are two independent towers. If one was to be demolished, it would not make the other structural unsound.
