Would anyone know what the small project is on the left of the Elysian on this picture? Actually... there seems to be two different smaller towers under construction...

The recent photos on this page show that the Elysian tower is close to topping out anytime soon.

its pretty much T/O, it just needs the tiny roof elements at the edges

It's going to look adorable. But the building at the base really looks out of proportion. They should have gone with at least 2 more floors with that building.

Anyway, The Elysian is still one of my favourite skyscraper projects of the last years.



Some images from skyscraperpage again:

I think they should've used those black windows of the base for the whole building.
White windows don't fit all that much on a historicist skyscraper..
