My only concern for the building will be the cladding. Obviously there is a slight difference in the aging of the "stone" cladding between the new and old areas. Are they planning on cleaning the old cladding to match the new?

I don't see any stone cladding on this one, it is all glass.

The whitish-grayish spandrel panels on the east and west elevations are stone. The stone panels are installed in the curtainwall panels.

Wow! That last picture is simply breathtaking! What a great view that's going to be of Aqua looking down.

There is a big gap between the new and the old floors, so if any colour difference might occur at all, you probably wouldn't notice.

love the gap between the old and new floors. Is that going to be the case when finished, or is it going to be boxed in with glass?
