Maybe its just the lighting at the moment, but that cladding looks really reflective, which is a good thing, because I wouldnt want to see a bunch of cylinders stacked up within the glass.

But the downside is you also wont see any office light coming out from the tower if the glass is too reflective or dark tinted.

Personally i would rather see this NY style glass where you can clearly see interior office lightings.

Yeah and im almost certain that was not the final effect, we have seen many shots of the samples, they are very translucent.

The glasses in the photo probably had those silver protective layers stuck onto them from the inside.

Also someone has pointed out in the chinese forum that the glass installed was on the truss belt levels, glasses on the other levels should be lighter tinted.

Sorry guys for the large files, but i cant seem to repost the pictures posted on gaoloumi.com by Mori, the picture hosting sites is somehow encrypted, so i gotta screenshot them.

Any possibility they're mechanical floors? Maybe that's why?

Yup exactly what was pointed out by the Chinese member. If you look carefully at the screenshot i posted, the glass in the third picture of the screenshot is very different to the glass installed on the truss belt.

The glass color looks classy. Very fantastic cladding. The outer cladding contractor is Yuanda right?

OMG Cladding !! This is the happiest day of the week !!

By the way, I think there is a temporary protective film on the glass, right? Once they remove the film the glass will look more transparent, right?
