The glass has no color at all, except for a slight dark blue tint in it, barely noticeable. If you wanna get the sense of a dark skin, just look at the building from atop, you'll get dark reflections of the streets and adjacent buildings.

That pic with the finger reminds me of how ugly tower 4 was when the glass wasn't there.

If anyone seen the diagram on WNY it shows the crane to erect the antenna as a Link-belt TG1900, guess one of the Favco's will come down soon

New York dominates Ghuagzhou in all categories, height or not. No other city can beat NY's buildings
