I didn't think I was going to like the intermittent fritted glass balconies on the shorter tower next to the more consistent clear glass balconies on the taller tower. But the way the light hits the apex of the curves on the taller tower, the two totally work together, moving away from and together, almost like they're dancing. It shows an exceptional visualization of design.

There are of course flaws - the low-rise townhomes, the expanse of light blue spandrel glass at the base, and awkward caps - but the meat of the towers makes them pretty spectacular.
