Many cities have light pollution problems even without lighting up the buildings. The biggest culprit are street lamps, and not building lights.

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned it, but I nominate The Center in Hong Kong. Day or night, that building is gorgeous.

Definitely The Centre! Though I think Miami innovated this kind of lighting effect.

I like the new lighting system at the top of the Empire State as well.

I regret not having ventured out more in Barcelona at night. There aren't that many buildings in the world with the whole structure lit up like that. I can only think of Cheung Kong Center being the other one, and even that building isn't completely in colour.

Lit buildings especially those with lighting effects enchances a city's skyline really well. HK is a perfect example of this.
