Are you sure they are mostly apartments? Because they all look like office tower to me, you can tell pretty easily by their blue-greenish window light.

I think that boxes aren't very imaginative, but at the same time i like them because they are practical and not as tacky as some of the newer skyscrapers we're seeing. Also those photos look so good anyone can mistake them as being computer renderings, but they're not , NICE!
