It only looks bad because of the weather.

I agree. For goodness sake, it still has the horrid white protective things up on a lot of the windows and is dirty from construction.

Let's just wait until the glass is clean and the white things have all been removed before we start making sweeping judgements about what the cladding looks like.

I personally think the small sections that have already had the white things removed look really good (and will be even better once cleaned), so I'm optimistic about the final effect.

There was an earlier discussion about cladding. Some of us think there may be protective film on the inside surface of the glass. Perhaps someone on-site will comment?

That's level 78 at the top. There are another three x 3 floor sections to level 87 plus another 7 floors of steel for the glass tip.
