The Elysian is turning out great! From the looks of the original plans, the white windows will eventually get painted black which would look even better. Great contrast in colors.

anyone noticing the way they are doing the balconies? they first cover them in yellow, then aqua, then they add some grout or metal bracing type treatment. are they adding real stone to the balconies or what is going on? guess it makes sense to put the real stone where people will actually touch it it (ie: ground level or balcony level). any ideas? call me confused.

^ Have a look at the Elysians website, you can find something in the subsite of "Residences".

Then you should have a look at this part.


jimbo: That's what I love about this tower

Can't wait to see this baby completed. It's supposed to open in July 2009.
