It's hitting 20% of its height soon! I like it! Good location and probably a fine place to live, in the thick of things. But how could it turn out horrible and tacky? The exterior won't consist of pink glass and bathroom tile! Rejoice, man! (Observe the renders, at minimum).

Yes, and I am now the first one to praise Chicago's Aqua wonder which I originally loathed given the renders we had. All I'm saying is that with 'funky' towers like these... you'd better get the cladding and other exterior elements right orelse you end up with a Las Vegas/Dubai-ish rubbish. In Chicago again, we have a current example of what I mean: the Elysian. THAT is an eye soar! In that instance, the design itself is the problem I think but the... "papier-mache" exterior walls are just...
You're right though, it could be a stunner; I'll try to be optimistic.

The sinous shapes would be inevitably powerful.

It is the quality and precision of the cladding that would keep away the tackiness. Especially how they reflect the light.

At night it could be hulkingly ugly with bad cladding, but wildly beautiful with the right cladding & good lighting.

IMO
