The Bank of China recently had a special lighting scheme to celebrate its 90th anniversary.

I have to admit I love the lighting of the AIG tower in HK, BUT

The ESB and the chrysler are exceptional aswell

NY has that classic lighting effect. In fact I really like it. July would be the coolest since it's Independence Day. ESB would be that nice red/white/blue lighting effect.

Although nowadays AIG uses more colours in its lighting scheme.

In HK, after around 11 pm, most lighting effect in scrapers are stopped. As for The AIG, it also has a nice video screen on the top.

Big exception is Central Plaza, whose spire lighting continues to show its colours during the entire night, and acts as a clock.

Is it because of cost cutting which they shut down the lighting effects? Anyway, most likely it would be the same in other cities.

Electricity conservation is a key motive, while the neon is not going to be much appreciated once the city goes to sleep. No point keeping all those lights on after 11pm, although the street-level overhead signs along Nathan Road and surrounding side streets in Mongkok might stay on longer. I've walked down there many times beyond 11pm and it's still bright out.

Also some areas in Wan Chai as well. Its because there are concentration of bars, nightclubs and entertainment centres in this districts.

Neon signs are a whole different thing compared to skyscraper lighting. It's not just Mongkok or Wanchai alone. It applies to all of HK, and in many other cities worldwide.

The Centre, HK, no question. It has this ability to disappear into the night sky. The lighting makes it looks as though there are lights suspended in the middle of empty space.

Personally I like BoC and Chrysler (the spire....) ESB doesnt do it for me

Once ICC is up. Most likely they will use LED lights or something similar to The Centre.
