Lakeshore East's Aqua is one of the city's most architecturally striking towers, and also one that doesn't have a ton of units available at any given moment. The tower has earned Studio Gang Architects numerous awards, and contains apartment units and hotel rooms in addition to condos. This week, two one-bedroom units listed, ranging from $475,000 to $649,000. Both offer incredible downtown views and superb amenities, although the units themselves are nothing to get too excited about. It's no wonder that there are almost more photos of the balcony views than the actual units in these listings. Here's a quick rundown on what's available.
