It is definitely weird they've nearly sheathed the entire building in glass before they put up a single panel, but there must be production issues. I'm very confident now that this orange color is not final.
Yeah. I got close on a boat but the picture didn't really show the detail.

This is NOT the final facade.

imho...

Been watching a building go up out here that had a lovely lavender undercoat! then aluminum grid over that and eventually metal and wood siding as the final finish. Possibly a similar process for this orange beauty :-)

Great find!

That photo also shows cladding going onto the garage in the rear of the building. The cladding looks silver.

Further, if you notice, at a certain point the cladding area on the garage feeds directly onto one of the yellow strips. Looks very likely we'll get that silver cladding all over the building, though impossible to know for sure as of now.

Perhaps those orange panels were a stroke of genius. Leave those up for months and make the building look so shitty, that whatever you choose to clad the building in afterward, people will view it as such a great success because it's wildly better than the orange panels.

Well , what ever the reason it sure is a tremendous improvement over the yellow cladding I had to wear sunglasses to look at .
PS ; I am not sure .... is this the taller or the shorter of the two high-rise planned for this area

Oops , never mine its the shorter . Second high-rise scheduled @ 350' and 24 floors .

Saw last night crossing BF Bridge that they have installed a few silver panels on the West side of the building. Whew, that is a relief. Since this yellow matches the hideous yellow top of the DRPA building a few blocks away, I was always a bit worried about that being final.

This seems like a fantastic marketing idea. Who the hell would be talking about this nondescript building in Camden, NJ. if they didn't make it seem like it was gonna be stunningly ugly.

Goddam genius.

So if I am reading this correctly , the " build out " could take up to five years for both towers to be completed
which means late 2020 . Is there a major tenant for tower two ??..... Not much time left from now to end of
2020 . What about the rest of the project area development .... are we looking at another five years for that
to be completed ..... or is part of , or most of this waterfront dream , just that .

I think this is the first phase of a billion dollar master plan. Am I remembering this correctly?
