What Color Building Would You Prefer?
This was posted in August 2017. It is been posted again because the external color of Aquarius is again under discussion. This is a bit surprising because the color of the building was supposed to remain white after almost 150 votes in favor of maintaining like it is. The full white paint of the building was done in 2009.
It is time to paint the Aquarius exterior. For around 10 years we had it white. White like so many high-class building in the neighborhood. Just look at Beach Club, Apogee, Hyde, Diplomat Hotel and Diplomat Residence (not the Convention Center), Palms, Trump and so many others.
There are some residents that would like some color. Some would like it white.
These two buildings down the street give a good idea of the contrast pure white versus color. They are 1701 and 1601 South Ocean Drive. Cambridge Towers and Oxford Tower. The Wellington is pure white with a very light blue accent from the glass balconies railings. Cambridge used several tonalite of beige, coffee, caramel with white windows and doors.
What is nicer? Clean white and with the light accent of the glass balconies railings or color stripes? What is more modern, appealing and cleaner look? What of the is more classic looking, with a more conservative traditional view?
You are the judge.
Now lets see how Aquarius could look like.
