Wow, I love it, I hope this gets off the ground! I wonder what the west side of the tower is going to look like though.

I wonder if this is the W Hotel that has been rumored for San Antonio. It looks like a W to me.

I really like the base with all that glass. It looks very sleek and contemporary.
