Yikes, what an eyesore. We've talked about this on other threads, and there is no PC way to put it... but as somebody who works/has worked with many international students and their families, I've found that many who come from "emerging" markets or formerly brutal regimes now enjoying great wealth have no idea where to draw any tasteful lines. A Chinese family I know who bought a beautiful home here in the States, and decorated it with the most hideous, plastic crap furniture I've ever seen. Mauve couches, those awful black plastic-framed mirrors, etc. This looks like more of the same; as others said... it looks like a bad hotel in Tokyo that was decorated during the "Bubble" economy years. There are tons of them... $400 a night and you get to pretend its the boom days of 1983!!! Woot woot! That being said, I like the IDEA of living in your own skyscraper... just not a hideous one.
