I already said that I like the cladding when there were just a few panels installed but now when few floors are with cladding, it looks even better than I expected!

I also wanted to comment on the facade. I've said for awhile that the blue glass schtick was getting old, like we're regressing towards 1978 or so. However, so far this is the best execution of the style as far as I'm concerned.

That facade makes this building work. The blue glass look has been done countless times recently but rarely this well. Also seems to be adding a good bit of depth to the skyline.

I really like the way they did the retail space on this project. I love giant corner entrances to buildings.

Not bad. Very understated, which is nice ... but ... a very conservative design. I hope it doesn't end up looking banal.
