Anyone have an idea what’s wrong with this facade that so many panels are getting re-attached?

When there are spacers this is only an indication that the glass panes have been replaced, not the actual curtain panel.

This “extra” level/strip of glass was made so that the operable portion of the other curtainwall panels wouldnt be as visible and allows them to be masked within the overall facade (unlike at Central Park Tower where they are distinctly visible, which i think are fine regardless).

There are many reasons why this smaller portion of glass had to be replaced, it couldve been damaged by the elements, the thermal bridge between the panels of glass and the mullions could have been broken, the panel couldve been damaged through thermal expansion or contraction, the sealant between it and the mullion couldve failed or the adhesive that actually attaches the glass to the panel could have failed, some of them are the actual operable panel that could’ve been broken from either the interior or exterior and the glass portion was just replaced. Lots of difference reasons, but without knowing the actual condition we wouldnt know the actual reason(s) for the need to replace the panels.

If you go back to 2018 in this thread you’ll see images I posted of the LED lights of the tower working. Nothing since then.
