Your city's most beautiful residential skyscraper

In your opinion, post your city's most beautiful residential building

For example in my opinion, Torre Sofia (159m) is the most beautiful residential building of Monterrey, Mexico

For the Gold Coast, it's probably Soul.

My favourite in Toronto is 1 Bloor East, currently under construction close to where I live. The current height is 75 storeys, not the 65 originally quoted:

The 65 storey condominium and retail complex was designed by David Pontarini of Hariri Pontarini architects. Anna Simone of Cecconi Simone Inc. is handling interior design work. Landscape architect Janet Rosenberg of Janet Rosenberg + Associates is handling the design of the podium's outdoor amenities.

The building's dramatic exterior features large balconies which run in sweeping curves up the tower. The fritted glass balconies give way to expose floor-to-ceiling curtainwall windows in a flowing band on each side.

At night, the luminescent nature of the building's integrated roof-top mechanical penthouse becomes evident as lights glow through clear and fritted glass walls, marking One Bloor's spot at the centre of the city's uptown skyline.

The ground, second, and concourse levels of the podium will feature 100,000 square feet of retail space fronting Bloor and Yonge Streets. A retail lined interior pedestrian walkway will link Yonge Street to the TTC subway entrance in 33 Bloor Street East at ground level.

[IMG]http://i40.************/281bvwz.jpg[/IMG]


The podium will feature residential units with large terraces on levels 3 through 6. Some of level 6 and all of level 7 will be given over to a spa recreation club for the residents of One Bloor.

It isn't the tallest but my favourite in Sydney is definitely One Central Park.
