Re: IDS Center

Almost all the time it is the normal warm white exactly as it was with the old lighting. With popular events in Minneapolis and on holidays they should have a fitting color to make the skyline look pretty and look like it's a time to celebrate. It's nice to see a little change once in a while. Yes,...

Re: IDS Center

I'm all for LEDs for energy efficiency. I am against splashes of colored lights on old buildings. It's fine at Target... it was designed for that. But yellowish white light is classy.

Re: IDS Center

I think it's very unfortunate that they replaced the large white bulbs on the top with LEDs. It just looks tacky. I don't understand why people think this about the new upgraded lighting. What can be so tacky about it?? The default color of warm white is exactly the same color as the old more energ...

Re: Capella Tower & LaSalle Plaza

Exactly... they have one (or few) prominent buildings in many that have the ability to do this. And I love cities like Shanghai. But I just think it's tacky. A skyline full of rainbows is my nightmare (and I'm gay). I mean, IDS celebrating vikings, while target does some german visual artist, while...

Re: Capella Tower & LaSalle Plaza

If some of you are old enough to remember like myself, there was a time ( in the not so distant past ) when Minneapolis had virtually NO skyline and NO buildings lit up . And our skyline was as boring as our city's famed invention of Bisquick. So to all to the Debbie Downer parodists on this thread...

Re: Capella Tower & LaSalle Plaza

Capella and LaSalle are both testing new LED lighting which is great! I'm excited to see the new lighting and other colors used. It's an upgrade and is definitely nice to see. The skyline is one of my main hobbies.

I put up one other video from September 22 with the Autumn colors on the IDS. This is one with more daylight above and a nice color in the skyline.

Re: IDS Center

I don't agree with either of you. The colored lighting looks very nice.The IDS switched to LED lighting and can display any color they choose to in an array of patterns. It took a while to do and was a major improvement. The crown lights on the IDS are a signature of the building and seeing those ch...

Re: IDS Center

Tonight the IDS had maroon and gold on the LED crown lights! Looks very nice! I really like all the colors to look forward to. Here's a video of tonight https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngFOx_WWfqE I posted some of the videos from the first night of Autumn when they had orange, yellow and white on th...

Re: IDS Center

There's been several nights so far of a colored scheme on the LED crown lights. It looks very nice and has a great impact on the downtown skyline. I film the skyline every single night just after sunset. They had orange, yellow and white for the first day of fall. I suggested them doing something fo...

Re: IDS Center

During the fireworks tonight, the lights on the top of the IDS Center were red, white and blue. Is that capability new? I'd never seen them anything but white before. That's awesome. Does anyone have any pictures? Check out my short video I shot after the fireworks. The red, (cool, real) white and ...
