^Green glass looks good on some buildings but the overall shape of this building just looks out of shape so the glass doesn't help it IMO... (One Museum Park Tower 2 looks good in green glass...)

What kind of range of colours does commercial glazing come? I'm assuming that it's not like nail polish, and doesn't come in "Fire Engine Red!"

Mayby if you ask? If they can make glass tables in it, they can also make panels for buildings in it

No, a flatiron is a pie shaped triangular building; narrow at the front and wider at the back.
Neither of the two last entries are flatirons.
