thats been installed LOOOONNNNGGG time ago. the protection was removed. it is a skylight you must see throught it..

Exterior cladding seems almost done but I remember when I passed by last week the street-level is not yet OK. Ritz will open this year, according to their website.

the lights on the same floor are probably the clubhouse/gym floor. I can't really think of any other reason why they would all still be on.
