In the torrent of words that’s been written about Aqua’s balconies, I haven’t seen any mention of the fact that they’re almost completely unused.
The balconies pictured above on the highest floors of Aqua face north and have spectacular views along the river and over the north side of the city. Michael Kardas shot the following view from a north-facing penthouse level balcony while the building was under construction.
Why are Aqua’s high-floor balconies so empty?
