The city hopes to use the easy-to-control color-changing lights to light the hall for charitable cause awareness and special events, including Giants World Series wins, Gay Pride Week, and civic occasions.
“I think the new lighting system will bring more foot traffic to the hall and a sense of joy to those watching the façade lighting,” Lewis said. “City Hall can be proud that San Francisco is at the forefront of technology while saving money and energy.”
The building remains an example to other American cities that the People’s Palace can be sustainable, save energy and money, and become a beacon of city life.
San Francisco is such a resilient city, and it needs a place to reflect that. The 105-year-old City Hall is a sign of the city’s history and the direction it is taking forward. Technology, sustainability, and the symbols of this city are apparent in this new lighting system.
