It is done by Viracon. I'm proud to say they are based in my home state of Minnesota, just south of the twin cities. They're also responsible for the office portion glass for 1WTC. They've also done the glass for other major towers like the Jin Mao, 7WTC, Comcast Center, Trump Tower (Chicago), and on and on.

The only one built so far,but he has dozens of unbuilt projects.
