This is one of the best looking towers in years. I'm really fond of the classic design. Gives it some kind of instant heritage. Perfect balance between old and new. Height is pretty impressive too.

I actually like this building more than the Trump Tower because it looks so beautiful and classy. Comparing to the trump Tower, the Waterview Tower not only appears taller and slender, but the 4 sides also look different which makes the tower much more interesting.

This building looks fantastic !!

Not really sure. They had to change the positioning of some of the caissons around and increase the number.
