This building's lobby is ugly as a nightmare. And what's with all that assorted-colored glass? I like the height and the shape; the glass and lobby just look cheap.

What lobby are you talking about? I haven't seen any impression of that so far.

Not sure what you mean by cheap, that lobby/entrance looks pretty fancy.

My oponion about the glass, is like others. When you are close, it looks cheap and tacky.

Maybe it changes when the tower finishes.

I have the same onion () When a building is under construction, a final opinion should be reserved until the building is finished.

Most of the glass of the lower floors is still covered by plastic sheet. But the parts that aren't look very good to me.

So this will be the last of the three towers to reach full structural height.

Saw this in person for the first time last weekend. The glass is among the most stunning I have ever seen. It soaks in the light and color of the sky and then blasts it back at you. It looks like a glowing crystal.

I could understand a comment like that if they mistook the plastic covering for actual glass. Otherwise, those comments are insane. This building shines like a diamond.

The cladding is beautiful, if it wouldn't be for those ugly wavy panels above the main entrance it would be truly perfect

I like that, it perfects the waterfall effect and covers the entrance.
