Cool city with cool buildings !

That was happiness then.

This is one of the best looking neighborhoods in the US.
If we can have something like this in Los Angeles, many people will abandon their suburban houses and move into downtown highrises.

I just realized that Aqua looking from afar is nothing but "very tall box".

Doesnt matter, I love boxes anyway

Theyre adding onto an all ready built building, did they design it to be able to do that? Has this been done before?

Yes, the building was designed to allow for that signficant increase when the company needed to expand its space. I'm not sure if it has ever happened to this scale before.

I used a photo of Pherek's from SSP, which was close to the angle from one of the official renders for 340 on the Park. I don't have photoshop but I merged the construction photo and render as best as I could using cut and paste in Microsoft Paint. Just gives an idea how much is left before they top out.
