Well I have seen the inside yet but in the end... I'd rate this tower 9,5/10.
Only the waveless mech floor makes it miss the perfection status for me.
I still ******* love it!

An elegant trophy for Chicago. I wonder what an apartment would cost in this building?

What is that building next to it? It looks like the Aon Center, but Aqua, though depicted nearly equally with the other building, is much shorter than the Aon Center.

It's just the perspective. I've been there, and yes, Aqua appears to be as tall as Aon.
