Bank of America Plaza's Lights Get Turned Back On Tomorrow. And They Won't Just Be Green.
At 6:30 p.m. tomorrow, a ceremony will commence at the Bank of America Plaza in Downtown Dallas to celebrate the re-lighting of the building known colloquially as the “Green Building” thanks to the old green argon piping that were affixed to its edges and helped it light up the night sky.
Since July, though, the building has been dark at night, looking very much like a shadow of its former self as construction teams have worked to change out those argon fixtures in exchange for the new, more-modern LED ones that now so dominate the rest of the Dallas skyline.
But, as the construction has taken place, the biggest questions on everyone's minds — what exactly these workers are changing out, and if the building continue to shine green when the work is complete — have gone largely unanswered.
Before tomorrow night's rekindling, however, there does seem to be some insight as far as these queries are concerned thanks to some late-night/early-morning videos that passersby have shot of the tower as workers tested the new lighting system while hoping that no one would notice.
In short: Yes, the building will still be green. But, also, it will be more than green.
As the below videos show, Bank of America Plaza will now at least boast the capability to shine in a variety of colors. How frequently this ability is flashed remains to be seen, but thanks to these clips, it's now essentially confirmed: The Green Building will now be The Green And Also Other Colors Sometimes Building.
