These towers are definitely among my favorite 5 buildings currently u/c anywhere in the world. The wind engines will produce between 11 and 15 percent of the total electrical consumption of the building so it will also be a really environmentally friendly building.


BTW: For those who don't know...Bahrain is the name of the country. The towers are located in Manama, which is the capital of Bahrain.

Wow! That will be stunning once it is complete. The wind turbines are a great idea too.

Great buildings. I had no idea they were this far along. And the wind turbines will be great for the environment, unless you are a hapless bird...

Amazing, yes. I had no idea they were that close to the water. Should be great when viewed from a boat.
