Aqua is one amazing tower. I hope that a tower of similar height is constructed just to the south of it.

yeah i totally agree, i'm seriously jealous of it and want it in toronto. i simply meant the wavy balconies look corny from certain angles. when you just stand in front and look up, though...nothing beats that.
