You're right, i'ts not A gem, it's a pile of them. I love the faceted facade of that tower. You have to give it credit just for the size of the architects balls alone.

PS, I wish they'd paint the concrete another color, it would greatly improve people's general opinions of the tower. Paint it cream, it would look so sick with that brown brick.

Also, the best part isn't even the crazy facade massing or duplex construction, but the sick treatment of the base. It's a pool deck, a parking deck, and a lobby with absolutely nothing else. No extra hallways, no blank walls hiding the cars, no fortress walls around the pool. Just entirely open and honest.
