Dim the Lights
Our modest skyline got a little darker last month. It appears that the Wells Fargo Tower has turned off its exterior lights and has now joined several other high-rises that also don't turn on their exterior lights. It's sad really, no sooner doe's the new US Bank Tower down the street turn on it's dancing LED lights giving Capitol Mall some life, the Wells Fargo tower turns it's lights off.
Two other notable towers downtown that should also have their lights on is the CalEPA building and the Federal Court House on I Street. Both building have pleasing displays around their crowns and really make our city twinkle at night when on.
The Elks Building off J Street was first lit-up about six months ago and I really like what they have done. It’s good to see that one of our historical landmarks can get so much love by its owners.
