The only bad thing close to it is The Pentominium, standing unfinished

At least this nice tower isn't completely surrounded by other uglier towers.

This tower has grown on me, not as revolting as I thought it would turn out to be. The crown imo is strikingly different, and that just does it for me!

Beautiful... the final result is better than any render... I remember almost 5 years ago when I saw the first renders of this tower... and now is almost complete!

Here's some of many interesting inside shots of 23 Marina from skyscraperlist.com.

All 26/February/2012 by ianpowell76.

First looking up from outside the entrance.
23 Marina offers a surprisingly different shape there

Let's get insides:
lobby pic 1

lobby pic 2

A double floor apartment with pool balcony - that's no boring place to live :



apartment pic 2

Well, this pool won't make you a good butterfly swimmer , but it's a spot to relax:



balcony pic 2

The pools looks less than 1 meter deep - I count 5 steps outside:

apartment pic 3

It's the double floor architecture, that allows a lowered balcony roof outside, without suffering too much light.
We look towards the next upper pool here:

apartment pic 4

The "pools" are a bit too small. In comparison with the size of the balconies they could be bigger and more to the edge of the balcony. But maybe it isn't possible because of weight or something.

Weight too probably. BTW, they serve as ballast to balance/stabilize the movements of the tower too,

The interiors are quite nice! Pool balconies, that´s the luxury man , even when the pools are small.

It's not a new concept, either a pendulum or enclosed water tanks use, is more or less the norm.

Burj Khalifa was supposed to have water tanks on top of the concrete section, but later during construction was calculated that they weren't needed and the concrete structure shape and strength was enough to keep the tower from swaying withing the acceptable parameters.
