when it comes to apartment layouts, wide-shallow > long-skinny IMO.
Lots more windows and natural light. of course the walk-out to massive balcony is really the clincher though.
plus, living area at DNA has the corner cut out from the HVAC. at OPW, they were smart and split the area that would normally be for a bath and made a stand up shower with HVAC taking up the other half, leaving the living area as one nice uninterrupted rectangle.
