^ Wow, King, we all would love to see them!

It seems that LakeshoreEast is producing a lot of interesting and secretively informative characters...

But don't we already have a rendering of the Tides? Or has it changed?

I'm especially interested in what Aqua will look like and the layouts will look like. This may be my future home. I love LSE, I'm making the move in a year or 2 after I graduate from college.

Whoa- this is much different than what I thought. It's like a box, but wavy like BVictor said. The light beam at the top looks cool too.

Thanks alot, kingofdurians. Dont be afraid to throw more pics at me. Wasnt quite what I thought either but I didnt know what to expect . Remember its a prelimenary model. It'll go through some refinements before its debut. But its cool overall. We just have to see detail, thats all.

Hmph. I don't know what I think about that. (Not good or bad just yet.)

Note the undulating, wavy, uneven slab-edges that vary from floor to floor.
Cross our fingers that Walsh construction (the G.C.) pours the concrete properly.

One scheme proposed that each slab-edge be painted with a different color all the way up the building. Another one asked for the slab to taper down from 11" or 12" down to 6" or less at the slab-edge!!! Walsh would have to hire some sculptors to do that!

The interior designers have picked out the color schemes for the Aqua sales center at the end of wacker drive. Expect blue/teal/green--ish color schemes and wavy wallpaper. I think they'll be doing renovations to the sales trailer in the next few months.

That third pic looks wicked. I was really thinking of something different in my head (probably a bad idea) but it'll look awesome when you're near the building and yet it still fits the conservative square look of the skyline.

Thank you, King, for sharing your shots with us.

My reaction on Aqua: I like the wavy look and more importantly, it doesn't have Lowenberg's bland taste.

on the typical flr plan,
middle of the floor at very far left,
the unit with square column separating the kitchen from living room,
that's one of the smaller units - a studio.
around $400 per s.f.

it is flanked on either side by 1bed 1bath units.
