Most likely gives them room to maneuver glass and louvre panels above and around the lantern and hvac units.

It's incredibly annoying not having the webcam in service at this point. How hard can it be for one of the largest media and communications companies in the country?

The cupola is interesting; I don't see any diagonal means for bracing from the ground on not on the upper levels; just at the bottom. I'm wondering about the strength of the cupola at that height with the wind forces even though I know engineers have this all figured out, its interesting.
Also I don't see any internal stairwell; I'm thinking it would have an internal stairwell for maintenance purposes

Based on nothing in particular, I have been expecting to see a internal ladder and simple platforms, with the idea that the platforms would provide lateral bracing
