I wish we could go back to 1928.. building inventory anyways.

This was hard choice. I voted for the Hamilton Building because I've always loved the block work. Second choice was National Bank, again because of the façade and it's a cool corner building.

Historically of course its the Union Bank Tower.

Does anyone know if the arches around the Electric Railway Chambers still light up? I should know this but I haven't noticed them lighting up floor by floor for a couple years it seems.

I haven't paid close attention to it over the years, but the pattern I vaguely recall is that the lights all work, then they slowly burn out and eventually a few years later the bulbs all get replaced and the cycle repeats. It's quite a sight when the building is all lit up.

Its a stunning building when its lit up at night, its probably one of the most photogenic buildings in the city when it is. Lighting features can make a building much more interesting, take the RBC building for example.
