DALLAS - The 55-story Chase Tower at 2200 Ross Ave. will soon sport a new night-time look that will add a new hue to the downtown Dallas skyline.

Crews are installing blue LED lighting on both the north and south sides of the building and expect to be finished this month. Then in December, a Chase logo will be added to the building's north side.

“This is another way to plant the Chase flag in Dallas, where our bank is a major employer and leading community supporter,” said Elaine Agather, Chairman of Chase in Dallas, in a press release. “Chase has more than 13,500 employees in North Texas, and we’re contributing $4 million to two landmark projects in downtown Dallas - Woodall Rogers Park and construction of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.”

The top of the building and it's signature sky window, known as "the keyhole," is currently illuminated by white flood lights at night. The new LEDs will be more energy-efficient, longer lasting and more reliable than the flood lights.

Chase Tower, completed in 1987, will join Reunion Tower, the Hunt Oil Tower, the Bank of America Plaza and the Magnolia Hotel as distinctly-lit landmarks of the Dallas skyline.

“The Dallas skyline is as unique and energetic as the city itself,” said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings in the release. “This major investment shows that Chase supports the growth of Dallas and views our city as one of the nation’s premier places to live and work.”
