What’s airspace have to do with the look of a building? Lol
They couldn't wrap the balconies completely around the tower or they would have encroached the hospital's emergency helicopter path. If they had wanted to wrap balconies all around the trade-off would have been a smaller floorplate for units, which in this case they obviously chose not to do.

Edit: Highlighted the boundary here. They're literally abutting it. I suppose they could have had balconies wrap 1/2 of the way around but IMO this was the better treatment (and there were likely a plethora of other reasons that we aren't privy to).

Great bands of light but a shame they are not RGB.
The crown lighting photographs well, but in person it looks like that cheap Canadian Tire tube lighting you bought in 2006 to add behind your headboard or TV. Looks tacky and quite cheap. This, the North face and the balcony railings ruin this building for me.

^^^ It absolutely does not look tacky and cheap. It looks tasteful and elegant. I live in the neighbourhood and stare at this thing every night. It's a great addition to the skyline.
Yeah it think it fits in well. There are certainly worse towers out there.
