    its in the middle of the city with nice views... the thing is that i want to be high up enough where people cant really see me and shit... but i dont want to be so high up that im like in the damn clouds... i still want to feel somewhat connected to the city below me... no other building really around.. just a bunch of parks and shorter buildings

    will the 12th floor be too high up?

    haha after re-reading, yeah i think we were taking it a little too literally

    my grandmother lives on the 7th floor of a building and it still feels relatively low to the ground (though there are other buildings around it)..i'd still go a couple floors higher though

    why dont you ask if they can show you a 7th floor vs a 12th floor (et al) and you can gauge it from there

    ha yea... i really didnt mean up in the literal clouds... just more like whats a good height without feeling too high and disconnected on the ground... they are still preconstruction so i cant go up in one and get a real view... hence the thread...
    but yea im guessing 12 would be the premier spot?

    people in larger cities like nyc and chicago live on 60+ floor. I would want to be as high as i could
