Where the protective layer is exposed the tile appears white and i just thought it would look like the model which appears biege-but maybe it's just the lighting and the angel of the model. Still one of my favs though!

If 210 of the 824 units are hotel rooms, then the other 614 units must be the serviced apartments.
