That is a result of the inner building core structure. Once the glass rises above the actual core of the building then it will be transparent as it is along its sides

Unbelievable this is so close to completion. This project has always looked like one of those dream designs that would never materialize, so the whole thing just seems surreal.

Still reserving my final opinion until the crown is complete, but this will likely top the best looking supertall list for me.
