i know they're just getting started with the glass, but from what i see so far, it's much lighter, greener and bluer than i expected from the 1010 rendering.

Wow -- the second photo is quite a shot! 1010 is really a new wave for Atlanta, and I love the way the tower curves with the street.

I would have to agree. When I first saw it, I thought it looked like Metropolis... (sigh). I hope the architects at Smallwood Reynolds Stewart and Stewart are paying attention to this development as they finish designing the Mandarin Oriental. Especially considering the rendering of the Mandarin already released looks to have the same blue green colored glass. I think we need a break from blue-green don't ya'll think?

Agreed. Hopefully this glass, once they get a lot more on, will start to appear darker. I would love to see something creative done with one of these glass towers - just something away from the ordinary green/blue or even black (a light red tint would be pretty cool). Either way, this building is starting to look fantastic, and already has a commanding presence on Peachtree.

I was actually thinking something very similar like a silver glass with a pink hue for the Mandarin would really set it apart from anything else in Atlanta today...

Anyway, it appears that in the newest rendering (posted in the AJC) that the glass is indeed greener than the model shows and Phase II has adopted the original blue glass.

I'd be really surprised if Phase II doesn't have the same color glass as 1010, and I agree that we're getting too many buildings with that blue-green glass. I was also surprised to see the stainless-steel (appearing) trim around the glass... in the rendering it appeared black. Still, after all the square and rectangular buildings going up that curvy fascade is an awesome and welcome variation!

what's really intriguing about the time lapse is watching the parking lot disappear and the site prep for phase II.

The glass is indeed bluer than in the rendering.

no doubt. i really wish they would have avoided the novare blue....i think a grey or dark smokey glass like in the rendering would work much better.

From 17th/Northside Drive, this building's making a hell of an impact already (wish I had my camera today).
