Noise exposure on Burrard Bridge

Driving through Burrard Bridge brought me nearby the building-underway close to the off ramp near the Downtown end of the bridge.  What I saw was of high acoustical concern.  On the Burrard Bridge (traffic) side, the facade or cladding material appears to be fully glass. Now, unless this is some specifically sound-proof glass or other highly functional acoustical triple or four panel glazing*, I am imagining that future occupants would have a tough time managing the road noise from Burrard Bridge.

*Double, triple and four-panel thermal glazing are oftentimes not spaced widely enough to be sufficiently sound-proof for use in busy street settings.
