I really wish Aqua looked good from every other angle, though.

There's a nice zoomable Chicago panorama here: http://www.gigapan.org/gigapans/24058/, and I took and merged some snapshots... it doesn't matter much that it's one year old. Aqua looks quite interesting from a distance, too, if you zoom in a bit:

One could read "4Y" - like a logo for a company named "For you". But I guess the tower should appear a bit lighter towards the top, so randomly the "balcony layers" are made smaller, showing more of the glass facade.

I made a scale model of Aqua, posted in the Creative corner under scale models as well, in Tim's Paper model thread.
