Singapore skyscrapers @ Night

What skyscrapers in Singapore have special lighting at night?
What are your favourites? Post pics!



My favourites are:

UOB Plaza - the lightings enhance the rotated corners and they only light up on festive occasions, making it more special

Capital Tower - the only building (apart from Battery Rd) that changes colour at night HK-style. Very colourful!

Parkview Square - simply awesome

The Concourse - looks like a pillar of salt

1 George Street - the blue is haunting

Cool pics! I think Takashimaya and Orchard Parksuites are often forgotten..but they look really grand.

The Land Tower looks really good when lit up after its recladding..too bad its only on festive occasions

Here is a pic of the landmark Marriot Hotel on Orchard Road

I actually like the suntec city towers at night. From other posts i've read, i get the impression that the suntec city towers aren't very popular? Well, if so, than i'm an exception.

Well...they do look ok when seen collectively, and with the other surrounding buildings. The different lighting systems do make it more interesting.

They frame the Beach Road area nicely at night. Very impressive when viewed from the Padang. On your left you get the grand old Supreme Court, City Hall & St Andrews cathedral, on your right the organic looking Esplanade and up ahead, the futuristic outline of SunTec City
