It turns out that this building is the tallest high-rise building designed by a woman in the United States. And what a design. The building was designed with balconies of different shapes and sizes creating an undulating, almost liquid effect. Because of that design, the base of each floor of the building is a different size and shape.
The building was completed in 2009 and that same year it won the Emporis Skyscraper Award.
Radisson Blu Hotel, condominiums and apartments. I checked and those apartments run anywhere between $1400.00 to $4000.00 a month.
I also checked the price of the condo units and all the ad said was all listings over $1,000,000.
One interesting note is that each site I visited to gather information for this post listed a different number of floors in this high-rise. One said 84, another said 87 and still another said 82. I wonder which is correct.
The new Aqua building is now right behind where I used to live. You can see it peeking out behind this building. If I still lived in that same apartment, my windows would now be looking right at it.
