Great tower, best turning tower I've seen so far!

Cladding seems to get darker as it gets higher. Is this correct or just an optical illusion?

Illusion, it is all the same colour, it just looks darker because the top is still black. When its all done it will look better (not that you can get much better than this :P)

Infinity has by far the best exterior of all the buildings in the supertall block. So sleek and sexy!

Nope, it looks darker because the wall faces the photographer near the bottom and reflects the sunlight, therefore looking lighter than the cladding at different angles higher up.

I'm fairly certain that JC_Zwolle's original question was referring to the section that already has the cladding fully installed.

That's a nice effect indeed... caused by some reflections, I think. The curves do a nice job (like on Ocean Heights). This doesn't appear with the sun behind the building on that 6th June pic by SkyscraperCity man.
