They have finally pealed the protective plastic off a few of the windows on one of the upper floors:

All the official renderings gave every indication that there would be glass on the top two perceived floors. Did that change?

I really think if they don't put glass up there it will ruin the tower, but I do believe they will do it.

Probably they are still installing machinery, and that's why they glass isn't placed.
Even the crane is still up there.

The uncovered glass looks great. Very classy color, a nice sort of grayish-green (although I'm not sure if there's an interior protective covering as well that might affect the color we're seeing).

And I'm positive the top ring of glass will be installed, but I expect we'll have to wait until the mechanicals are done and the crane is being taken down. The lower mechanical floors will probably be finished, and the drums exposed, before the top section is done. We've just gotta be patient, but I trust that Viñoly knew what he was doing, and that the renders represent what we'll be getting.
