Looking at this rendering from onewtc.com

It really wouldn't look half bad.

It would fit NY better than the current glass, too.

I like both grey and blue, but I think black would be better than both of them

True, but it's possible it depends on light. I mean the cladding won't look the same all the time; for example in the morning it will be grey, orange during sunset and navy blue at night.
I'm sure it will be grey when the sky is cloudy
