not radiators, but insulated pipes IMO. Could be heating or hot water supply.

Yes insulated pipes - but odd to have them on the exterior wall.

The units in question, with all of the insulated pipes, are called Fan Coil Units. These, in particular, would be referred to as 4-pipe fan coils, although there 5 pipes. The center pipe is a drain for condensate dripping from the cooling coils. Do a Google or Wikipedia search for fan coil units for a better description than what I could put here. These units in the building will have ducts connected to the sides of them to distribute tempered air throughout each apartment. Having the units prefabricated, with the insulated pipes as we see them, saves labor at the jobsite.
