Very interesting detail! I personally think that there is really some kind of clear glass, because there is no gap in the columns and details, which are part of the cladding.

Could it be an additional observation deck on the very top? Some kind of skydeck perhaps?

It looks to be tier 21B at close to 700m, the last one with all three big accessable wings. So it would make sense.

It would be awesome if it were an additional observation deck. Do any lifts go up this high? One of the signs in the mall says "gaze from the highest man-made point on earth". That's not true for the other observation area. Maybe it will only be for VIPs or will cost a small fortune to access.
