There's also some purple in the lighter-colored bands, but I don't see it all the time. I wonder if it's related to amount of sunlight, or temperature, or both?

Direct vs indirect sunlight; sun angle; time of day/year; and cloud cover will all effect the perceived glass color. Add in the varying shades of glass color and thee's another layer of variability. Long story short, this building will be quite chameleon-like.

You may notice some purples if the lighter glass is reflecting colorful sunset/sunrise colors.

Not much glass in this shot from last fall, but you can see the far-left glass reflecting the sky.

Will most of this be covered in glass by end of September? Also, this is about 5-6 floors from being topped out..?

I wouldn't be surprised if it was covered even sooner, but that should be a good guess. I honestly think August is a fair estimate since way more than half is covered if we are talking about square footage + good weather is here to stay for the foreseeable future
