^ Thanks guys, but the credit should go to Aqua - it is almost impossible to take a bad picture of this tower.

I would be very interesting when it snows on the balconies, it would surely build up on them when the snow comes at good angle.

Those curves are not balconies, but I thought the same thing (rain actually).

They are definitely balconies...unless they change their minds and decide no to have them.

They appear to be railings and not balconies because:
1. No handrails
2. Sealed windows

the majority of the curves will be balconies, some of them coming as far as 12' from the face of the tower.
