This one isn't nearly as glassy as some suggest. The concrete grid is too prominent for my taste. Still, it's damn impressive.

The glass still has protective coatings on it. Just wait until it's finished to judge its glassiness

Yeah, the covered windows are dull and less reflective than the white concrete -- once the coverings are pulled off, the opposite will be true. It's going to shine.

I don't know what smokestacks you have seen.

That 111 tower will look even more like a smokestack because it is tapered.

When I think of "glassy" towers, I think 4WTC/7WTC, One57, etc. The concrete grid is too much for my liking. The glass panes may glisten once their covering is removed. But their is still too much concrete exterior for me to call this one "glassy".
