Looking sleek! Love the colours they are using in the glass, too.

I used to love this project, but it seems to have lost a lot of sleekness as it rose.

Looks to be about the same sleekness at the top as at the bottom to me...but just my opinion, right? Sweet towers. Would be nice to get some sort of thingamajigy on or around the roof...mood lighting, ya know?

That it would. Perhaps they could do something to mimic the multicoloured glass panes along the base?

If they illuminated the pyramid in rainbow colors (Empire State style) I would worship them.

It's just north of Bay and Carlton I think. Across the street is Burano, a taller skyscraper that is basically part of the same development.
