Those are moving headlights just like the one in the picture. They put a dome on them for outdoor use.

That means that the light show for this building will just be amazing!

Cant wait to see both interior and exterior mix when lit up.
This tower doesn't need a spire just to add a bit of height.

Jesus christ what a monster! I remember the renders when this tower seemed just too damn high, very out of proportion of what it would really be. But look at it.

But would have made it the highest building on earth.

Anyway, I agree with you, would have made it also look horrible.

You don't think they get the news out of Jeddah or Dubai. I think this will get interesting. And skyscraper fan's like this will just sit back and enjoy!

Aurora still saying Aurora. So the picture must be pretty old. Obviously the cladding is much further down as well.

I think Aurora tower is using a huge LED panel to display the logo, thats how they are able to switch between Chinese and English.
