I thought many historic European buildings already get the traditional spotlight treatment. Those can look very nice, too. But they're not skyscrapers though.

Mmm, subtility is lost on some designers.
Too many bright coloured buildings can make a city look like something build for children.... or people who spend half there life playing videogames.

That's HK for you where you can find a game centre almost every four blocks and where a big population of the city spends much of their leisure time in one unless you're epileptic

Most likely those from the upper floors. But I think they have a certain time when they have these lights.
