Noticed this morning that BCBS building LED light's were pink this morning. Does anyone know if they change those similar to CLink?

Also noticed that Genesis Health installed their new sign yesterday.

BTW BCBS's LED ribbon can go Blue, Red, Green and Orange. It also has a program for 'Sparkle' but it is not installed.

Also - This is the first time in the 6 year history of the building that BCBS has actually used a different LED color - because it is too hard to maintain.

Cost of what? I don't understand.

My company does some multi-color building lighting. The main cost is replacing the bulbs.

I sure don't see the "cost" being an issue either. If anything, I could see places using "Cost" as excuse so people don't expect them to turn it. My opinion is it boils down to branding. Places that have a color associated with their brand don't like to stray from that color very often.

Looks like the first steel of the Hilton Garden Inn went up in the past few days on the southwest section of the property.
