Colourful skyscrapers

I wonder if a thread's been done for this before...

But anyways, I thought it's be interesting to create a thread to show off and share pictures of skyscrapers or other buildings that AREN'T the standard blue shades. These can include buildings that are:
-Red
-Green
-Yellow/gold
-White
-Black/grey
-Any other colour that ISN'T the typical blue glass. Red brick does not count and neither does beige concrete.

Not completely limited to skyscrapers, but preferably tall :P

They can be either constructed, under construction, or proposed.

Can't wait to see what you put!
