That's a great photo. Now, am I smoking crack or can I still not see the green glass? Shouldn't the green glass encompass the whole left side of the building from this angle? It definitely looks different from the blue glass on th right, but it just looks like a darker shade of blue.

I've noticed the light blue vs dark blue (instead of green) as well but personally I like the all blue color much better.

Dave they might have gone blue -blue, but it also might just be the glass protective covering, which is on most glass. I hope that its that and not that the developers cheaped out like on blue.

I hope they retain the green. The blue/green contrast was one of my favorite things about it.

^ like the first pic from the bay trickykid...Marina Blue looks about even now with 10 Museum Park at the 585 foot level so it should be topping out soon.

^ trickykid remember the left side of the tower (the green side) will be higher than the right blue side...also where did you take that first pic?...from a dock or boat?

Yeah, thats true. I guess the right part of the tower has just a few stories to go then, and the left side will rise the full 57 floors? That first pic was taken from watson island, aka parrot jungle island looking directly west.

these aerial pics were taken by jamesgood72 from his model aircraft he flies from Bicentennial Park across the street. The first shot is of the upper floors.
I didn't know model planes could get so high!



below is a shot of the complete tower...the two toned glass is subtle compared to the renderings though.



I figure the building should be topped off by next month or so.

What a great shot! For the first time I can finally see the very subtle difference in the glass colors.
