The John Hancock Tower, a 60 storey office building with a mirror glass façade comprising 10 334 individual double-glazed units, had many of its windows fracture while the building was still under construction, with some falling to the ground. Eventually more than 4000 m2 of its façade was replaced with plywood while a permanent solution to the problem was sought.
