The cladding on this is top notch! Me and my girlfriend were both amazed at how it was pretty much camouflaged with the sky other than a few white lines!

This is a photo taken from my phone, should upload better camera pics later this week:

That's why I don't like too much reflective glass - buildings just dissapear in some weather conditions and skyline seems to be smaller. Imagine disctrict consist only with mirror buildings - invisible city.
