It's all perception. The footprint for this building is equal or larger than the Aon Center.

Kinda reminds me of a modern take on late 80's interior designs.

I believe there is something called being "too contemporary." They should keep it simpler and classy, in my opinion the models are a bit over the top.

I recall reading a number of posts back that the no two units in the building will look the same, and that each one will be different. If that's the case, then I'd bet the interior designing of each unit may be different as well. I mean, come on--if someone's gonna be spending up to $40 million on a unit in this place, don't you think they'd pay very close attention to the details of their home? I would!

If you're spending one million plus dollars on one of these units, you'll remodel it to your liking. Maybe someone on here could propose some alternative layouts from the blueprints that have been provided.
