About half of the white lights were already burned out & it was looking like hell. I wonder if these are LED? Anyway, IMO they illuminate much nicer when you see them in person and I'd bet money that the change was made because of the PH owners having such bright lighting on their terrace & shining down into their suite below. Even from a casual observer looking up, I think they were too bright before.
From my POV, both Murano have roof lighting feature lights burned out, CASA for about half a year, The Met's feature light has been pulsing red & blue for well over a year (and the wind feature hasn't worked in at least three years), RoCP has burned out lights - rooftop lighting is a great idea when executed well by the developer, but they need to be maintained by the building after turnover.
