Orange or green? Whichever team you’ll be rooting for come Sunday, One World Trade Center has you covered with an LED display that alternates between both colors each night until game day. The specially illuminated spire on the United States’ tallest building is a celebration of Super Bowl XLVIII, which will take place just a stone’s throw away in East Rutherford, NJ.
1 WTC‘s spire will be lit until midnight each night leading up to Super Bowl Sunday. The spire’s colors will shuffle between Denver Bronco orange (which looks more like a red, in our opinion) and Seattle Seahawk green, giving each team’s fans equal trash talking opportunities. Once a champion is crowned on Sunday night, the spire’s LEDs will be illuminated with their color for all to see.
The Empire State Building has also been hosting nightly LED lightshows displaying the two teams’ colors this week.
The Durst Organization has been testing out One World Trade Center’s spire sporadically in the past few months, but the beacon is usually unlit. One World Trade Center is set to open some time this year.
