White the shape is boring, the glass is spectacular. These photos, while very good, do not do it justice.

Facade look dull compared to the renderings... The classy dark glass is in fact ordinary blue like we see in many new towers.

Is it really blue in person? I can't really tell from the pictures. Sometimes, black glass look blue in the light.

In other news, this has apparently topped out.

Sadly, it was never black glass. The glass is blue in the renderings but the shadow of the other building made it look dark. The sides are what will be black; hopefully they will darken the look of the glass a bit.

They're from mid-August. Just a fun look at the jobsite on the roof level up close!
