Don't know if this photo will show up or not because this is my first attempt at posting a photo. If you can see it, does anyone know what the lights within the red circle may mean for the building? Are they thinking of covering the entire building in these? They change color which may be rather unique (arguably tacky).

I doubt it. It is hard to imagine covering the buildings the size like this with all the LEDs. Maybe be it is only for a small section of the building, like a banner, so that they can show something for various events.

I am so anxious to see what the crown will look like. It is still completely covered.

Now I feel much better. It bothered me a lot before. I don't see this on many other under-construction skyscrapers though.
