Curtain wall going up on the south western angled corner. It's very clear with a grey tint. Sorry no pics

From what I've heard it will be very similar to the cheesegrater that they just finished (Leadenhall in London). Dismissing the wonderful architecture and how London is so far and away better then our skyscrapers, the glass IS quite striking (both in pictures and in real life).

The glass looks ok. Nice suprise to open the page up and see some progress has been made. You can really see that angle now.

Every render promises a silvery tower. That's not what we seem to be getting at all. The glass looks like instead that it may have been switched so it better resembles that of the other Bay Adelaide Towers to the west, with the green tinge that screams iron and low-cost.

I was definitely expecting better cladding for this tower. Based on what we can see, it looks pretty cheap and dull. Something more along the lines of the glass on Telus House would have worked really well here. A shimmering silver.
