Glass is not dark enough... the concrete columns can be seen too much...

Thanks to Big City Vision for the photo.

Wish that glass was the same tone as that on BHP Brookfield Sq 1.

That light shade makes the columns look crappy.

I really wouldn't like it being the same glass as BHP or it'd just be a boring dark blue stumpy box, I think the unique clear glass is one of the few things going for it. That at least adds something different to the skyline and stands out a bit.

well just wish the columns weren't so visible, and wish the box of a building was more curved.

I like it. It reminds of 'demo' units.

I actually really like the glass on BP2. It's grown on me. It's extremely reflective in certain light and at certain angles, but completely transparent at other times. It's a very simple building but it's high quality.

I thought it is a kiosk for the BHP tower.

Are the daytime transparent pics we're seeing, with the internal lights on?

If not, once the building is occupied, the internal lights may change the transparency.

Some clarity is needed on this.

It'd be good if we could all just reflect on this until Brookfield sees the project through to the end.

I wonder how it would look if the concrete inside was black instead of grey, and then the clear glass?

The columns will be painted/clad as part of any fit out, and there will likely be plenty of window treatments cluttering it up too.
