Yes, some buildings do, like during Christmas time, some buildings change from white lights to red and green. On Transamerica, there is a bright light lit up on 7/4, 11/25 and during the Christmas holidays.

Hopefully, you'll still be able to actually see it too, what with all the other towers going up around it, they might actually block the building from some people's view.

At Christmas, they do the Empire State Building in red/green.

^^^Uh..... I guess so.

I don't think they are going to go as far as to light up the whole building in green or whatever color there is. They usually do that on commercial towers. As for residential towers, usually, the crown has some neon lights, and/or other eye candy on it at night.

If they made the dimensions of the tower light up like Embarcadero, that would be nice. But I dont know how good it would be if its the only tower doing that though.

It's not the only one. Another that has substantial crown lighting is the St. Regis condo/hotel at 3rd and Mission. I'm pretty sure there are others but I don't go to a vantage point (like the Bay Bridge) at night often enough to notice recently.

If they actually used St Regis as a model, it would come out preety nice. I just hope they dont hit delays like they did with St. Regis.

^^It probably won't. Residential projects usually take two years to complete. I think why St. Regis took soooooo long to finish was because there was the historical William's building that had to be renovated along with the construction of the tower. In addition, there is a museum inside the lower levels the tower and lobby, which have unusual floor plates and heights since they have to be incorporated into the historical structure that couldn't be demolished. Least to say, the historical Williams building dragged the project on for five long years.

It wasn't the Williams Building. St. Regis intentionally slowed the construction so the market would be better when their units went on sale. Also, they obsessed endlessly about the interior finishes, intending their hotel to be the classiest in town (St. Regis is Starwood's top brand).

Quote:
CMI Project Manager John Seymour says the St. Regis building required major flexibility in both the design and installation phases. A long delay at the onset of construction, after the tragic events of September 2001, brought about some needed changes by the time construction resumed three years later. The owners hired a new designer to update the interiors, and pushed the project to fast track.

Business huh, well, I guess you cant blame them for wanting more of it. If that was the case, then I dont think there will be any danger after all. The market right now looks good for a while.

So I guess this means that the project will be completed in 2-3 years, yes!

Heh, looks that way. Me, I'm being catiously optimistic, because you never know when they will hit a wall, and then oh no ... here we go again.

This is now a Turnberry project. Turnberry is not known for hitting walls and they have immense resources. They will do the project on whatever timetable they have internally set, but I would expect it to move forward fairly promptly.

Actually, the fact thats its now a Turnberry Project is what I think gives people more hope that all with go smoothly. I guess its just normal paranoia that makes it feel like some problem is waiting.
