Facts

  • A steel skybridge connects the towers 170m (558 feet) above the ground at the 41st and 42nd floors. The bridge is open to the public.
  • The foundation under each tower is a 4.5 meter thick, 32,500 tonne raft containing 13,200 m³ of grade 60 concrete, supported by 104 barrette piles driven into the soft rock.
  • These were featured in the Hollywood blockbuster film "Entrapment" from 1999, starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
  • Though they still hold the World's Tallest Twin Towers title, the much sought after World's Tallest title was taken by bu>100765 at the official rooftop topping-out ceremony held on July 1, 2003.
