I am so tired of plain white. If it wasn't for the excellent lighting on the 2nd Street Bridge, I would probably be more irritated by yet another half ass lighting scheme that seems more like a secondary thought than genuine effort. Having said that, it's better than no lighting. It's disappointing that the tower portion of North Shore isn't lit up. Someone mentioned awhile back about how cool it would look if it was lighted in a way that would give it a cascading effect like a waterfall going into the river. I'm really suprised given it's prominence that the developer didn't add lighting to the tower. It's pretty dark looking at night

The lighting does make downtown Austin feel more alive. I love it!

Found out today that Google will be putting their name on the building before they move in this September.

I hope its just a lit version of the current G logo, colors included. Any indication from your source about the exact form?

Nope I didn't ask. She did say it would be on the south side of the building, but there was concern that TC's planned tower would block views of the logo from across the river.
