I'm sorry, but can someone point out which one is the Aurora Building you're talking about?

They missed the golden opportunity for years to promote their brand in local language. It's a great move they change it now.

I bet all the other buildings will follow suit. I always thought it was self imposed racism that all the signs facing inward were smaller and in Chinese, and all the signs facing outward were in English. I guess someone other than me finally realized that. Maybe Citi, Mirae Asset and HSBC will follow suit. I don't even know what Aurora or "震旦" does.

Do you think it will be lit similarly to HKIFC?
I guess I don't mean actual words/shapes, but dynamic lighting that moves.



There's one building somewhere that has a "pulse" of light (i.e. the light starts at the bottom, moves to the top, etc) in bands....I can't remember which one. I think ST will be rather handsome at night.

If you're not in the right place on a clear night, it can be difficult to make out SWFC since the lighting scheme is a bit odd from some directions.

It would be cool if they had sequenced lights running up the spiral.

Or running up the fin/gap of the spiral.



Bad colors, but you get the idea.

Yes. It says T/O (topped out) in the thread title so that means it has reached its full height!
