The key element about this tower is light! Yes the balconies too of course, but the way they interact with light creating depth and shadows is what gives it this unique and mystifying look.

Stunning piece.

Man!!! Sometimes really... After Comcast in Philly which turned to be a beauty besides the crappy renders, this thing comes out of nowhere!
Hell! The Freedom Tower might even turn out alright in the end?

I agree!

I honestly believe that most people are obsessed with height than design.

This tower has a nice design with a very good height.

It's stunning, and if this was being built in your city you would think it was great too. I think it's the best looking building going up at the moment, anywhere.

If the Aqua tower were proposed for NYC anytime soon, I would celebrate!

I love this tower!

I have been a skyscraper fanatic for 28 years and I must say that I have never seen a skyscraper I didn't like.

But that photo above is a WWWHHHHOOOOOOO!!!! my goodness, its unbelievably good.

Yeah, when I saw it in its initial stages, I was just kind of like OMG this could be a total disaster. It just didn't look like it was going to be so dramatic as the rendering I guess. So I avoided this page for a while and for some reason decided to check on it and I got a great surprise. Its a very beautiful looking structure.
