I think it was all over the world, not just Australia. There's a thread for it somewhere. But yeah, that is what it was about.

Does this building count as complete enough to be included in the 'rate our talls' section yet. Will slot in at about 20th wont it?

It's status is now completed - hence it is now officially the 17th tallest building on Earth and the world's tallest residential building.

The buildings lighting looked stunning as pink, they should have rotating colour patterns all the time. I find the plain white lighting a bit boring..

I don't think the residents would be very happy.

The spire of 101 Collins St in Melbourne is lit in such a way though - it cycles through several colours slowly.

The pink is mega hot but yeah like people have said the residents would be less than impressed. Their appartments on the upper floors must be bathed in pink light.
