Hmm. I thought there was a thread for this already.

I enjoy how the yellow balconies contrast with the blue glass. I might be alone but I have always liked this tower.

^They actually have the glass in for the first three floors or so on the south side. I will trot over there tomorrow and try and get a photo of it.
