I think that the buildings have too many differences and don't blend together. Their style is too oldfashioned, I have a whole different style. I like modern buildings or even classic buildings with a modern edge.

The one on the left is beautiful, but I'm really not fond of the columns on top of the one on the right. I gave them a 6.

Do they have a newer and better version out (I didnt think simcity 4 looked all that great maybe I am wrong)?

Here is a rendering I made last month with both towers. Also included is the 54 story Ritz Carlton/Marriott Marquis opening in 2010 and the Hanover Tower opening in March of 2007.

I think that only looks good if the buildings are square identical twins, for these asymmetrical buildings (one some what square and one rectangle) I think the side by side position make their differences more obvious while tying them together neatly.

I love these two odd sisters. I give them a 9

but them being side-by-side like that makes them appear intentional and thus artificial, if they were diagonal (on seperate blocks), their presence would be more organic becuase this is how great skylines are formed; random placement of buildings...not them neatly lined up in a row. that is the difference between manhattan and dubai.

That's only one element in a city of randomly placed buildings. A bunch of building lined up in a row does look dumb I agree with you on that.

The poll is closed so I could not vote.
The design is too classic for todays modern architectural styles.
I give them a 7

I think that SimCity 4 is AWESOME...you should definately give it another shot (make sure you get the 'rush hour' version though). As for the bldgs...I agree with the other comments: a good effort was made to make the bldgs look classic in their design; however they are far too symetrical and that overrides the sense of uniqueness that the bldgs would of had. The placement into KC couldn't be any worse...totally out of place/context!

Sorry they are contrary to everything I difine as modern. They are 1920s and 30s are not great examples either. But then I am Chicago School. Please tell me their not new proposals. Score a one.
