How about Hong Kong Shanghai Bank?





"The Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) has incorporated 716 intelligent lights including 450 Colour changing fluorescent fixtures in the glass stairwells.
Martin Exterior 600's and 200 fixtures on five levels, 8 Search lights and over one kilometre of LED lighting around the top of the building.

The incorporation of the above fixtures make HSBC one of the most visually impressive buildings in the 'Symphony Of Lights' spectacular."

Atlanta's got a couple good ones (I'm thinking the SunTrust Plaza here as one of them, for those of you who know what it looks like), I just have to find some pictures of them.

Because of the lighting effects, I think a majority of HK skyscrapers are among the best lit in the world! It's not just The Symphoney of Lights but where there is an event like Christmas or Chinese New Year.

Another image of Central Plaza and other Wan Chai skyscrapers.

I like the Bank of America Tower from Miami, looks so pretty. Probably the building with the most colors schemes.

But compared with The Centre in HK I think The Centre has the most color schemes!

Some HK skyscrapers have nice lighting and doesn't need those Symphony Of Lights or any lighting effects!

Hi everyone,

I like Burj Al - Arab in Dubai and HSBC Tower in HK, I have seen them personally. I also like Eiffel very, very much. The Petronas Twin Towers is special as it is specially designed by world famous contractor 'Philips' to shine from inside and lit from outside. Anyone that have been there before would say 'Yes' to Petronas Twin Towers. For your info, it is lit at 7.20pm from the top 50m and then, from inside by 7.35pm and finally from the bottom and skybridge by 7.50pm, totally impressive!











MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Nothing like some of those, but a couple of local standouts.





The later's top changes gradually throughout the night with different patterns or full colors.

I should've gone out at night more when I was in Barcelona.

Give me the basics of New York or Chicago and I can feel the energy. I don't need the neon. It's "OK," in my book, but, it's a little gaudy. I guess I'm conservative.
