On the coast in FL, that's going to be impact-rated glass and frame as well as the wall it's installed in. The glass is probably 9/16 laminate and the reinforced frame is probably fastened every 12 inches with 1/4" lags. It's good stuff, but it's expensive.

I'd like to know what caulk they used around the frame.

At a guess,  BASF's NP1. It's what I use. I've cut it out 25 years after installation and it's still flexible and well stuck. 

It is not easy to work with or clean up though.

I'm gonna say less expensive than the alternative in this case.

Not quite as cheap as moving to higher ground or away from the beach. 

I don't quite understand the urge to build 3' above sea level in a hurricane zone. Even when I owned a house 2 miles from the beach I was 25' above sea level. They always seem to be surprised when mother nature shows up and sweeps it all away. If the feds would stop subsidizing the insurance that allows the rich to build million-dollar mansions in harm's way they would probably stop building them. Maybe the homeowners like it because they get a subsidized renovation every 10 years or so.

One of my favorite restaurants in New Albany IN is on the river side of the the flood wall.  Every time I go there I wonder if they have any kind of insurance and if so what it costs.

According to FEMA, it's less than $1000/year average and since the insurance companies won't touch it, it's underwritten by FEMA and your tax dollars.

In NC we just legislate those problems away.
