Beautiful cladding. Hopefully, a good amount will rise today so we can get a better vision of the tower.

I wonder if the glass has a temporary protective film on it? If not, the glass isn't as clear as I expected, even considering reflection of the sky.

I can't wait for more! Imagine a whole floors worth installed every week... I didn't expect it to be so "thick", it's really going to make the tower look even bigger.

Thanks for the photos!

Some towers are able to use the window washing unit, or BMU (building maintenance unit) to pick up the glass and hang it a few floors down to the workers.

Another major milestone... I can't wait to see more of the glass go up. It's gonna be better than 7wtc's glass.

My thoughts exactly.
It is amazing to see the cladding go up after 9 years of designing/redesigning/red tape preventing this moment from happening earlier.

So happy I could die.
