I like the ending of the tower on the rendering. I hope they will keep it. Real Art Deco style.

^ I'm starting to highly doubt that just judging off how the facade currently looks.

But I do pray that it will turn out nice or atleast halfway nice...

Do we have a wide render of this building? Not sure where it is and what impact it'll have on the skyline... Thanks in advance

(PS: 666th post. Think I should have been more evil than that really...)

You know I prefer buildings with glass facades, but there are always a few that come by that aren't dominated by glass that are amazing to me (and this is one)....

I counted the floors, and if I'm right they are around floor 20-21. Halfway there!

I think it has just the right amount of Art Deco style detailing.

Not boring. Not too busy. Looks good with it's neighbors. A very elegant design.

Looks like this will turn out better than the disappointing Elysian.
