At Bank of America Plaza, the Lights Are No Longer Neon or Green

The official unveiling of the new lights on Bank of America Plaza (aka that green building downtown) isn't for another two weeks. But those fortunate enough to be traversing downtown in the predawn hours Wednesday morning were treated to a brief preview.

The lights, as you see in the picture above, are no longer green, at least not permanently. The old argon tubes have been replaced with modern LEDs as part of a multimillion-dollar renovation of the tower, and the LEDs can be programmed to change color.

Chicago-based Metopolis Investment Holdings hasn't revealed its plans for the new lights, whether it intends to keep them mostly green or turn them into some trippy Omni-style light parade. We're hoping for the former.

And here's a video:

With luck, over time our CBD will begin to approach the tasteful stylishness of Bangkok or Manila.

Why are they all broken lines?  Faulty LEDs, or is that on purpose?

Get some LED's for your plastic bridge, and you've got yourselves a World-Class City.

@Sharon_Moreanus If you don't want Hookerish Rainbow Light Shows, you don't want Dallas to be World Class.
