^They will all be built

I'm not sure how final the height for tower 3 is though. Although the renderings showed it slightly smaller with a new design, as far as I know (I could be wrong) there was never an official height reduction announcement.

You should look (or look again) at the video posted by Sterlippo1 (in the middle of page 113 of this thread). The overall effect is very good. Besides, T3 is now more elegant than before.

Every cloud has a silver(stein) lining.

I see what you're saying, but even that extra 100 feet or less would help replace the monster presence of the twins that was there before. Size isn't everything, but it is sure something.
