I think it's tinted blue, because 432 Park Avenue's glass is transparent, not reflective. I think it should be reflective, but it'd be even more blue.
It think it's a bit of both. And I'm sure the blueish color has a bit to do with the sky reflection.

Dude, that there willl be another tower that is even more skinnier than this one, doesn't make this one fat.

I hadn't realized until just now that they saved two of the small buildings at the base. I am glad to see that, even though several other beautiful ones were demolished.

This thing is looking TALL.

I already liked this tower a lot, I'm starting to love it. The white on the building looks fantastic. We can now have a clearer picture of what it's gonna look like when it reaches to almost twice it's current height, with that white concrete and those dark glass panels. It's gonna look great, I'm a fan!

I have followed this tower since it was proposed and I love to see how is becoming more and more popular and how is changing little by little the skyline around it!!!
Flawless tower!!!!

Black tinted glass will add to the whiteness of the concrete which is nice

I feel bad for exploiting this tragedy, so hopefully this'll bring awareness to those who have not heard about the story. It does provide another shot 432 PA however.

It'll be out of sight so for the tv viewers it will look like it is an endless tower.

It's a short list, but a good one. One of my favorite skyscrapers of all time and a former world's tallest building.

Finally been able to post!

Indeed there has been both a core and perimeter form rise! Whic makes this building now ~806feet or 245.6meters tall! Just 10cm off Bloomberg tower and 70cm off of the MetLife Building!
