I am a sucker for a curved corner on a podium like that, when it's executed so beautifully.

I am amazed that the base of a building like this could be fitted into an aquarium, let alone suitable for an aquarium-type space in the first place. Talk about mixing entertainment and office space into one building-- true mixed use!

Apparently, this is what this block looked like 30 years ago.

For one thing, the Empire Theatre supposedly was picked up and moved to the west.

I love the quantity of spires in that shot. Makes it look extra futuristic (in case the glass facades weren't enough). Love them.

has someone a picture like the one posted by Bob, just from lets say 2002 and 2005? I would like to compare how the skyline has changed during the last few years. Thanks in advance.

Personally I don't like designs that get wider as they go up, they look like they are about to topple over and look to bulky and bloated. It's not that bad though.
