I hope that once it is all clad in black glass it will have a better outlook than today. The guys who are building it told me that the glass is akin to black diamond color. If it is true, than we are for a BIG surprise.

It indeed looks blue due to the sky reflection, I'm still curious to see the side cladding.

Real black glass will not appear very blue, even in reflections.

The glass is looking better and better, but it's a shame they still haven't started the sides.

I don't see much progress with the glass at all. Still looking forward to see this one completed.

I like how this one gets lost in midtown, even if it would stick out in many skyline around the world with it´s almost 200m.
