I think there may be some at the bottom. I have a hard time believing theyd forget a hue given that the design seems to focus on that :p .

Very nice towers. I wonder how the colours turn out in real life.

But ugly parking garages at the back (as usual). Why don't they put these things underground?

Again, high water table and huge cost for dewatering to build basements
