So are those just roof equipment screens, or they for wind resistance for the roof balcony?

On the south side of the building there are two black panels mixed in with the red panels. Is that intentional or are they waiting to replacements to come in? It looks pretty stupid.

You can also see the steel added here to reinforce the storefront. The building had a mean gangsta lean
