I might be wrong but I think is primarily related to shadows tall buildings cast ... which I find kind a strange for a city with plenty of sunshine and a mild winter.

CASA -the airport authority has imposed a 330m (above sea level) limit for whole of sydney metro. Sydney tower reaches 309m (327m above sea level)
council has imposed a height limit in 1994 for 235m ,this being underside of sydney towers turret.
sydney is very strict on protecting its parks and public areas from addtional overshadowing from nnew projects.
we have areas where we can go to only 50m or 100m, 150m 200m and 235m.
the hottest in gets in summer is mid 40's and in winter it gets to 10deg during day or 0 at night.
anyway lets not harp
back to her majesty, princess tower.

The cladding became blue? Original renderings show it green, can someone confirm it? I made a model and I guess I need to change the colors....

Depending on the light conditions, the colour may look either blueish or greenish.

What? That the light conditions have nothing to do with the color of the cladding, I just said that they probably changed it to blue from green and I want sb to confirm it.

Of course the colour that the glass apears to be, may change depending on the amount and angle of light passing through or geting reflected by it.

You do know that cladding glass has layers of other materials either on top or inside the panels, don't you ...
