Yes is my guess, fairly sure they will paint it to protect the steel if nothing else. My assumption is that they will be constantly painting it like they do with big bridges. By the time they get to the top they will have to start again at the bottom.

I think GZ tv tower should use color to display weather information.

For example, white light means sunshine tmr, red light means storm, etc.

The DoCoMo building in Tokyo is like that, but then again why do you need a building to tell you it's raining? I think it's pretty obvious lol.

Its nice to see that the lighting has started even before the ribbing tops out.
