Great picture, Joe! That is definitely a very shiny, blue part of town now. I hope Post doesn't use blue glass in their building...

The Allen Plaza buildings are actually not blue glass. I think what you're seeing is mostly the reflection of the sky.

They look a bit silvery-blue to me (in person and in pictures) beyond the sky's reflection. It could just be because I'm colorblind.

The air seemed somewhat clear, but the windows were a little dirty. It does look hazy on the horizon though. For some reason I didn't end up with any other construction shots besides the W.

I hope they fill in the space in between the helipad and the building with glass. It looks horrible as is. Also, they've set up and have been testing the giant electronic billboard. It colors all the buildings at the the northern edge of Downtown.

Sorry for not posting earlier. This is a shot I took with Bank of America Plaza as the focus. The new W hotel can be seen in the foreground.
