5/1. Tried my hand at Iphone editing for the first time. I went a bit overboard and can't find the original image haha.

Once again. The developers changed the width of the building. This required additional anti-swaying measures AKA the blow-through floor.

If you click edit on the image again there should be a red Revert at the bottom

I want to like this. First I wasn't a fan, then I was a huge fan as I saw how the curves were turning out. However, now that I see it with all those random dark sections and the blow-through floor, it looks really sloppy. I don't think I like it after all.

Sorry I don't have photos, but there appears to be a single louver on the east and on the west among the glass. Can anyone confirm this or are these areas just missing glass?

It sure does seem to divide opinions.
There is consensus that the louvers mar the south face.

I've been wondering the same thing. I don't want to believe that the building could possibly be that sloppy

I think it’s awesome and kinda goofy at the same time.

Wow. Have not heard that. really could have put many if not all the crits to rest. Still could have done the glass thing...transitioning from a dark gray tinted glass to a more clear or reflective glass to get the gradient.

Just looking at any of the photos in black and white would do the trick.

Great observation.

I for one love the building, just as I love Aqua with it's mechanical floor. It may be a bit different when it is part of your daily (weekly) environment.

I vastly prefer her naked - but all balcony all the time is a hard sell in Chicago.

.....Hello, I have been in Mexico for the last 5 months and not really following....could I ask when is the scheduled completion date? ...and when will people start moving in ? ...assuming they can move in before the building is totally finished.

I guess I just don’t like the chunkiness of the lower portion. If it were only the two taller sections, it’s beautifully sleek and powerful. I like to put my thumb over that “short” portion and imagine what it could’ve been.
Still, it’s pretty cool.
