Allow me to disagree, it looks fantastic at night! (from far away anyway, I've never actually been there).

I mean it's ok when it's on its own, but when every building is trying to use the same lighting style... it becomes tacky and lacks elegance

Not really, but we used to have less flashy lighting schemes. Now every building knows how to flash.

Yea, reckon they really ruined it with the new BoC lighting. But then if they didn't change it for BoC, it'd be ridiculously overwhelmed by CKC, who's lighting, despite being extremely flashy, actually looks good (and overwhelming).

i agree totally with rach ... excessive multicolorchanging blinking flashy lighting is super tacky ...
those are like way too bright ...
i think the Center started it which is kinda subtle ...
and then CKC ... now its everywhere ...
since when every new projects have to add a few lines of lights at the crown ...
argh ...

That image takes ages to load! Please use bayimg.com in the future or something. Anyhow judging by the photo on the previous side the nightlighting i think looks great, i think colorful spectacular nightlighting suits HK.

Hong Kong at night is breathtaking, it's so neon and electric looking. Definitely a city of the future if I've ever seen one. I hope to go there someday to see it myself...

That's HK......traditional, modern and futuristic. All three in one city, which is its biggest appeal.

Any news on this tower??? What's up with the crown?
