Great tower for NYC. It reminds me of the "Aqua" tower in Chicago.

The cladding is really good, but I'd like to see some more ripples. Sometimes I look at the flat side and think it looks nice, other times it's kinda depressing thinking of what could've been.

Just like Aqua, this looks way cooler from below than from a distance (in my opinion, at least).

This building is absolutely nothing like Aqua. Aqua is a box with shaped balconies used to create and illusion. The illusion is broken by their poor choice of railings used on said balconies.
