Last night, developers officially flipped the switch on 9,000 feet of new LED lights on downtown's Bank of America Plaza they've been testing for the past few weeks. What followed was a lively--some might say gaudy--light show, a rapid-fire showcase of some of the fancy new colors (256 million of them) and patterns Dallas' tallest skyscraper is now capable of. See below for The Dallas Morning News' hard-rocking video after the jump.
Dallas skyline traditionalists can put their minds at ease, however. The familiar emerald hue will be the default color, with the more Pink Floyd-esque displays reserved for special events and holidays.
Let's hope so.
