    I think another building of similar height in Aura's vicinity would help with the aesthetics.

    Nearby buildings would only need to be as high as the boxy section of Aura to improve the aesthetics.

    Yes, sort of like making it wear a skirt! However, it really would be like putting lipstick on a pig - Aura looks OK - or even quite good from some vantage points - at the top but ghastly at street level (and the less said about the poor sad 'mall' part the better!)

    This one's a bit wavy as the phone was in Pano mode.

    Are you using a new iPhone 6? I have the new iPhone 6 and the photos I'm able to get with it are much better than with the 5.

    There are some tiny spaces in the basement - I guess "mall" should be in quotes!

    And she is off. The last piece of canopy was taken down between 9pm-3am last night, and being right beside it (with the window open), it sounded like an explosion which scared the hell out of me.

    Those 3 double-height balconies at the base really throw off the balance entire building at street level, because with a building of this height, the balconies above them look like their sandwiched together in comparison. Synchronization is broken.

    EDIT: Haven't seen this before. Setback lighting on Aura from tonight. Lightsaber blue:
    *Also the darkest skies i've ever seen on the webcam.

    Where it's urban. And dense.

    From this perspective the uneven floors at around the top of the first third of the building look particularly bad. You almost want to take a digital rendering of this building in some kind of drafting software and just straighten it out and make it less...inelegant.
