KAKAAKO, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The glass on a new condo tower in Kakaako will continue to shine, to the dismay of many residents in the area.

Symphony Honolulu tower is close to completion at the corner of Ward and Kapiolani, but some nearby residents have complained about the reflections seen on the 45-story building.

The board of the Hawaii Community Development Authority voted to accept a $1 million payment from the developer to be used to mitigate some of the reflection of the tower.

The money may be used for landscaping to create shade for the public in Kakaako and lessen the glare from the building.
