THE Spire, not a spire

It's a whole new supertall not affiliated with Aqua.


Aqua is probably my favorite building under construction right now. It's beautiful!!!

Such a beautiful building. Great to see that it's topped out. I can't wait until it's completely finished.

The curves will become more visible as railings are added to the balconies.

Wow is that cool! All the colors look amazing! It's very beautiful, definitely not something you generally see on a skyscraper. They've taken this building to a whole new level at night!
