The basic, economical, rectilinear form takes on a decidedly different appearance with the addition of the undulating balconies of varying shape and size. More than just adornment, the shape and placement of the balconies provide sufficient disruption in wind force to eliminate the need for a tuned mass damper in the building and will make the balconies usable even on the uppermost floors.

The developer is Magellan Development Group of Chicago. The building is 82 stories and will house commercial tenants, residential rental units and residential condominiums. Additional information can be found at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aqua_(skyscraper) or www.lifeataqua.com/.
