Unless my eyes or monitor are deceiving me, the panels in this photo appear to alternate between having no tint and having a blue tint. ...even the curvy reflective panels. Yes, the blue tint is very subtle compared to the renders and especially compared to the blue protective film.

No, my impression looking at it first hand is the darker ones there have no blue tint. They are simply dark, or gray.

Not dreadful, but certainly not eye popping either.

Judging from what's installed on the east end of the south elevation (and looking at the renderings), my guess is that the cladding on the west end of that elevation (currently under protective film) will look just like the cladding that does not have film on it (silver and grey). Also venturing a guess that the cladding with film is protected due to the tower crane above (located on the far west corner of the building), which probably lifts buckets full of concrete all day long, so this area is probably prone to spilling and that must be why the cladding is protected. Regardless of the colors, I think these curved curtainwall panels are very very cool!
I believe that is exactly what you said. Even if you look for blue glass, you can see that they are scratched, and in some parts almost taking off.

At first I also thought that the final color of the glass was one in blue and white, but after that installed the windows gray and silver all made sense.

Who are you speaking to? I have seen it in person, most recently Sunday.

I really would love the blue and white color scheme but accept that is probably not reality.

Anyways, I'll live. The most important thing is NYC is getting a much needed 1,000 footer.

I agree with you. It's not often that I say this about a non boxy building but this building is incredible

Yeah I don't think those renders are up to date with whats getting built, the wavy part on the left side is a lot thinner on the building then in the render, and the one on the right is slightly thinner to......

If the render is different with the building, I hope they leave out the ventilation panels next to the waving panels.

Absolutely amazing cladding. One of the best I've ever seen. It's going to be a great building.

I also prefer the alternating silver + dark teal/grey colour. I think it will look amazing when you see the entire face cladded.

The blue + white colour scheme stands out too much and does suit the ambience of the area.

The only thing I was not sure about is whether there are two or four distinct colours on the south facade. Silver + grey curved panels are confirmed, but what about the dark + light colour straight window panels? Are they the same colour as the curved panels?

I am also unsure whether the panels will reflect the blue sky more at higher elevations thus becoming more blue like 1WTC.

It looks to me like there are at least three colors and possibly four. Just look at the area above the right entrance, which I believe is the hotel entrance -- you can see three distinct colors in that area alone: silver/gray, light blue, and dark blue.
