^ Don't worry, I'm sure Chicago will deliver something to your liking.

I have to say, at this early point, I like this tower better than Aqua. The reason is that I think the radical parts of its design are more substantive. Living in this tower, with the smaller floorplates and getting the experience of seeing the other 1/2 at arm's length, will be a very different experience than one might get in the typical large condo building. Not so for Aqua, which is nice, but where the departure from the normal high-rise paradigm seems to be skin-deep.

This is also a nice way to produce many corner units, which not surprisingly is Smithfield's continual goal with the MoMo and SoNo projects (hence the twin-tower and inset balcony configurations).
