Those towers are a much more attractive design, with the constant taper
from bottom to top, than the BX stepped design. Not only do they look
better aesthetically, I would say they are mechanically more rugged. It
would appear to me that twist stress, which is of particular concern with a
self-supported tower, would be more heavily concentrated at those tapered
steps at the top of each section of the BX, while the constant taper would
evenly distribute the stress along the entire length of the tower.
