True. No details, just maximal reflectivity in the glass. Great building.

Absolutely. I also love the reflections in the glass, especially in WTC7.

I like the reflection on the eastern side of 4WTC. Looks like OLP left an imprint of itself on the tower

That's true. Its facade is beautiful but it ages very quickly.

from http://www.wtc.com/news/c/construction-updates

WTC Construction Update, November 2012


4 World Trade Center

Structural steel is now topped out at the 72nd floor, with only upper mechanical and roof bulkhead construction left. Elevators continue to be installed at shafts up to the 50th floor with separator beam pockets being filled with high strength grout. Concrete and core walls are complete up to the 65th floor, as are column encasements. The temporary diagonal bracings have been removed up to the 60th floor and the curtain wall installation, which began in late April 2011, has reached the 63rd floor. Both the below-grade mechanical work and the fireproofing and masonry work are advancing.

i think the derrick arm is yet to go on...

I hoe the lighter colour of 4WTC won't mismatch the rest of the WTC towers' cladding too much...

You can see here that the glass for WTC1 and 4 isn't blue but that it just gets its blueness reflecting the sky, or am I wrong? The towers appear more grey here reflecting the colours at ground level.

I think you're right. In my opinion the glass is neither blue, nor grey, it is just reflective of whatever color its surroundings have

Seems I was wrong about this tower, Maki was right about the beauty of clean and sharp angles.
