Oh, that’s mechanical venting and not glazing. Looks like windows from a distance and I didn’t even notice when I took pics from street level last month.

Worried now that we’re back to the glass/spandrel on the way up to the top.

I looked at the renderings on the first page again and in fact they clearly show two levels of mechanical venting below the glass crown. So this actually shouldn't come as a surprise and doesn't necessarily indicate that the entire crown will be mechanical venting.

It does show the vents on the newer renders. I assume they'll just continue the pattern above. The renders don't show any spandrel on the tower at all though, so who knows if the crown will end up being all spandrel or not.
