There are 2 spires on the south facade that run the entire height of the building, of course the LEDs are integral. We're fine on this one for now, but we will see how long that lasts. LEDs have a bad track record in the city and Douglas Coupland isn't going to change that.Integral? I wouldn’t agree. They were as integral as the Arriva one was (barely/not at all). They were two blue LED strips and we don’t know the reason they were turned off. Malfunction is just as likely as neighbouring towers asking they be shut off.
This is a piece of public art designed by a world famous artist in collaboration with a world famous architect, implemented by a renown developer. We’re fine.
