Agreed. Every render ever published has clear glass. I feel like this would be a crazy curve ball. I feel pretty confident that the glass is clear, we just haven't seen a totally unwrapped panel yet.

There have been unwrapped windows near the base, at least early on, and they looked much more gray and mirror-like. Of course, they were in shadow, and glass tends to take on more color given sunlight, but we haven't seen any indication that we'll be getting particularly green glass.

The thing is if you put any sort of crown on this you'd get a Dubai tower.

I have seen uncovered windows from about 5 feet away on the truck and from 30 feet away installed and they sure looked green to me...I will try a take a picture early next week sun permitting and you can decide for yourselves

this is from the web cam, but this is how they appear from the street as well. the windows on the lowest level below them still BlueGuard on them.
These two windows are the only two that I have seen uncovered and I walk by this building several times a day...as I say above I will try and get a better picture next week

Yes... We are all waiting very anxiously to see those pictures.

Please be free to take more than a few nice close ups (of the building and site too)... It would be awesome. It's the most interesting project on the planet.

There's a lot better candidates of being the "most interesting project in the world" then this, honestly. Take for example, the Kingdom Tower or even the WTC.

I was maybe being a little bit provocative... Of cource I can't say that I speak on behalf of all... But there's just something in this skyscraper that makes it for me.

Actually many things now that I think of it... The height, the slimnes, the location and the city around it, the minimalistic design, the big scenery windows, the ingenious engineering, the luxury, it's straightforward smooth look and rise of the form, the honesty to the purpose, that it is been built to house people, well only rich people, but to do it in the most efficient (within best quality) kinda way possible... Well I think that remains to be seen, how happy the occupants will be living in there, or up there... But in all... Interesting, very interesting... And live on EarthCam !

There are other ->very interesting<- skyscrapers too of course, but this one... For me, it's on top of the list. Can't help it... but it's ok, I like it that way.

1007.5 feet. just nitpicking ...But great to hear it has passed One57. I remember the journey One57 took to reach that point and it seems like 432 park did it in half the time
