Turning out well. The definitions at the base are more subtle than I initially thought they would be in real life

Does anyone else think this was a 10 minute job in some CAD software to put a bit of a twist into the building that has resulted in a real pain-in-the-arse when it came to actually building it?

I have trying really hard to buy an apartment in this building but nothing seems to fit my budget. Quite overpriced... Looks great though..

This is for everyone on the forum, the product of my attempt at the most difficult task I have taken on so far (apart from doing 5 ASs & 4 A-levels - including Art ).
This diagram took every effort, pages and pages of calculations, every floor is different and you don't get that with any other building which made this a very technical challenge.
This took more than 4 days of my summer holiday, but 'why' do you ask?
Because I enjoyed doing it, I enjoyed making it happen, so I hope you too enjoy my completed illustration of The Baltimore Tower, drawn on Microsoft Paint 2003.

And how the Baltimore Tower compares with London's skyline* :

Sky graph - LBT + 22B + 1CS + 110B + LB + 1PD + 8CS + 52LS + T42 + VT + 30SMA + 100B + 1BR + 20FS + 10PD + BWT + GHT + WWE1&E2 + 51LS + Lloyds + TNB + 8WS
by The Shard Baby 2006-2016, on Flickr
*The comparison only applies against the buildings which I have drawn so far. 25 Canada Square diagram coming soon.

Interiors and balcony design

I'm starting to have a look at the property interiors available on (for example) zoopla.com and I think the designers have really messed up with the design of the floor to ceiling windows and glass balcony walls. It appears to be a sheer drop from the living area with the floor extending directly onto the balcony and only a glass partition at the edge of the balcony. I'm not particularly afraid of heights but I find the whole thing very scary.
Examples below.
