LOL Carlos, that is hardly indicative of what the glass on the tower component will really start to look like.

Besides, I was too distracted by the construction worker pic.

im getting a feeling that this building's facade will be largely opaque but with the glass's brightness adding a twist to it. the renderings show that but we never could fully speculate what it would look like cause renderings hardly ever come out 100% as shown. however that photo of the glass, however small a portion, makes me believe.

Thanks Carlito. Still not convinced till I see a few floors of it though. lol

Looks like an opaque very light aqua for the floorplate panels and simple ole clear glass for the windows. Actually pretty true to the large Cook & Fox render c/- Phobos on Page 1.

Thanks again.

They should add a waterfall around the outside of the building it would look awsome. The whole building is clear it would be cool to work in one of the top floors and look down.

I think the glass will not prove to be a disappointment, but one of the best looking in the city.
