The first tower is the Aria tower. It's got a relatively simple design. It's named the Aria after the same-named tower in Las Vegas which gave me a lot of the inspiration for a multi-tower interconnected casino structure. (Altho it looks nothing like the Vegas counterpart).
The second tower is the Tower of Terrace. This is just one sample -- every floor is significantly different and it looks sort of like a vertical puzzle when all put together... It's a play on the Tower of Terror ride at Disney World... but then ties into the terraces that you find on every level.
The third tower is the Infinity Tower, and is called that for two reasons. it's the building you see on page one of this thread. For one, it's the tallest thing I've ever built, at 12 stories. It almost reaches the ceiling. The second is because of the inclusion of water... with infinity pools on several levels where minifigs can soak and swim while gazing out upon glorious views of the water. The building itself is actually a giant waterfall, with water running from top to bottom, pooling at many of the setbacks.
The base of course was the hardest to build. Here's a sample:
It was a major challenge creating interior access, particularly at the lower levels. Several of the walls are completely detachable to facilitate getting at the inside.
Photos still to come!

This is the best pic I have at the moment, showing a very early construction phase of the Tower of Terrace Monorail Station.
And here's how it looked in MLCAD...

I also want to make you a suggestion, would it be better to add some vegetation, such as flowers around the tree or especially at the edge of your waiting area (the green corner in your MLCAD). I'm just saying that because by attention to detail, if the goal is to make a realistic creation, adding flowers at this place would be interesting for the harmonization between other buildings and of course to put some life (adding colors)!
We must also think of that poor maintenance minifigs have to do!
