The "icing on the cake" would be the light-up of the hole after dark.

i dont think so, it's probably just unfinished cladding. The entire tower is like that at places. I don't know why though, probably to use as vent holes so contruction workers don't over heat?

Of course it is not finished, the exterior work is not fully done yet. Do you think such building would be left with some big errors on cladding?

In the photos by kix111, is that smog or fog?

I hope it's the latter.

SWFC - 492m
