Good catch. I think that this the new usable window trend makes the skin of glass towers ugly looking when they are open, and this is a nice way to solve the issue here.

Haven't caught up with this tower in ages... Oooo man that's sexy. Is it going to remain a dark grey for the panel color or is it still protected by a covering? That glass and the other details look superb.
