One thing I noticed with a lot of these towers is that they lack balconies. I think that sometimes they are necessary but are perhaps sacrificed to provide a sleeker profile. Some of these towers may as well be office towers.

I can probably understand that they aren't present in windier cities, or on higher floors where it can get very windy.

It is all resi. There is a small amount of apartments available for short term stays though. But it is still a resi tower.
