Two Questions:
1.When does the "AIG" letters get installed?
2. When will the tower light-up?

Good LORD...I am loving how it is lit up but it looks like a great deal of electricity being consumed...

Have to see how they light up "AIG" before I can pass final judgement on it.

i don't think this is an external lighting system. Just some light bulbs installed inside all over the place (most of the new skyscrapers in hk did it before, like 2ifc, harbourside, sorrento...). But i am sure the external lighting will look good. Spot lights will be installed for the fins on top. Shooting upward to the sky.

Yeah, the same situation happens in Pacific Place Three.

Don't worry by the time they really USE it they won't have it lit up this way.

night scenes are quite dissappointing, doesnt dominating in the skyline at all. Maybe have to wait until the final result of light fitting.
