I recall hearing it was 100% pre-sold...but not entirely positive about that.

Originally I really didn't expect much out of that building but this is not jut surprisingly good anymore... It's starting to be out-*******-standing!!!

Do you think they really 'thought' of the balconies' reflections giving the curvy glass aspect?

I agree. The render looks tacky but it's coming up really well. It kinda reminds me of those two cylindrical skyscrapers in downtown Chicago.

Sunday, 6 April:

Doggie park





Ballroom, etc



Ballroom brace (bad exposure)



Could these be residences?



East face



Here is the lot between Aqua & BCBS - LSE has it listed for future development - not much room!
