I'm fine with it, as long as they don't use green glass.

Or blue. For me every glassy building should be like The Shard.

This tower would be The Landmark in practically any city on earth, other than NY where it's lost in the ocean of skyscrapers.

at 145m it would be lost in other cities too. Chicago or Hongkong for example. But NYC reached that a 319m tall Skyscraper is almost lost in the skyline of Midtown

HK and Chicago have much thinner skylines than NY's which stretch along their waterfronts. While HK, unlike Chicago, has a lot between the waterfront and the mountains, practically everything built away from the waterfront is forgettable garbage.

Nope. It's very transparent.

It looks blue from a distance, so that should be enough.

It's a glass... When sky is blue, It reflects a little bit, but as patrykus said It's very transparent and almost not colorized. And It looks just great!
I think Tower Verre will have that kind of glass to reveal construction structure and interiors.

I could have known this is a Christian de Portzamparc design. He designed a very similar building in Rotterdam that was never built.

Somewhere else. For the area it's in, the height is perfect.

Although it is night and day compared to its surroundings and some folks may find the contrast too jarring, I feel it enlivens the street a great deal with its sheer audacity. It is like a piece of glass breaking into shards, an explosion..

I love this building. For some reason though, I can't fully wrap my head around how it works. The shape seems super confusing... in a good way.

Another thing I love about it is the subway entrance.
