This building is beautiful, but in an understated way that transcends the garish and tawdry towers that going up in places like Dubai, Las Vegas, and Moscow. It is sleek, elegant, and it soars.

The cladding look flat compared to this render, or are they still going to install these?

Yep. This building has a great impact in the skyline but the cladding is a big disappointment compared to the renders we had.
What happened to the golden-ish look we were supposed to get...?

it so does, but have they changed the colour of the glass? The initial render show white colour and the real life ones show bluer colour.

no, it seems pretty accurate to me. Its a sunset from a high level. The color of the facade all depends on the sun hitting it. Plus its at twilight so the sky is darker. The Sunset and Twilight create the color you see in the rendering. My guess anyway
