Sky Tree will turn on the LED lights on 23rd, 24th and 31st but only white LED
http://www.tokyo-skytreetown.jp/dl/pdf/20111215_01.pdf

I will translate some of it:

On the 23rd, 24th and 31st they will turn on LED lights, but only at some parts over 125m (so you can see sky tree from far away).

@495m (the roof); 60 lights pointing up for antenna
@335m, 440m and 495m; 384 lights pointing down
@125m+; 276 "intersection lights" (so I guess going inside the tower)

But they are only going to use 720 lights out of the total 1,995 when it opens in May. When Sky Tree opens in May though only the antenna will be white, and the body will alternate between blue and purple.

Thanks NihonKitty, was wondering if it would be full illumination and was thinking would be partial.. looking forward to seeing it though

The illumination, even if it will be only partial, I'm sure the tower will look wonderful. Looking forward to see some shots of it by christmas and new year's.

Can see several white lights flashing along entire length of the tower tonight - 1 every 100m or so...
