Neon Lighting Turned Off at Dallas' Bank of America Plaza

Lighting system to be upgraded to LEDs

The tallest skyscraper in downtown Dallas no longer has its famous green outline.

Workers this week turned off the signature green neon lighting on the 72-story Bank of America Plaza building. The complex will undergo $20 million in previously announced upgrades.

Officials with leasing agent Peloton Commercial Real Estate say LED lights will be installed. Sarah Hinkley says the updated system is meant to enhance the light quality and color.

The project should be finished by November 22 for the city's 50th rememberance of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The office tower opened in 1985.
