there must be some balconies that can only fit really skinny people in it.

What turns on Alain Roberts the most?

I am just not too fond of this tower. I don't think it translates well from design to real-life.

i'm not too fond of it either. i do love it when you look up from street level... it's like a sculpture. but i don't really like the way it looks from far away or care for the mechanical floor area that doesn't have balconies.

I like it a lot! It's really a 'Dubai-esque' tower. Go Chicago!

Think about it...It's basically a box with shaped balconies. Fantastic concept to build a futuristic of look on a budget. The mistakes are many and the biggest mistake are the railings. They should have spent the money for glass railings it would have been a seamless facade.
To me it is a "what could have been" building!

it works from street level very well, not as well from 300+ft up (which doesn't matter much at all) because the glass isn't mirrored.

I think Wave at broadbeach pulls off this kind of thing better, but this project is so much more sizeable.

It doesn’t look good from 300ft up? I think it looks equally impressive, you can see the details. Aqua is a very unique building where ever you veiw it from.

Very cool building! What a nice change from the usual glass-cladded sameness.
