Colorful Murano glass is famous around the world and now a real estate development with the same name hopes to build on that legacy. The Murano building in Long Island City, New York is described as a "glowing glass sculpture" and will light up the sky when it officially launches sales on June 6, 2010. The condo takes its name from the island off the coast of Venice known for its glassmaking, and will emanate a different hued color every hour on the hour, starting from dusk until 10 pm every night. Between the seventh and eighth floors LED screen lights will send colors from Long Island City all the way to Manhattan. The building also has a wall in the lobby that will emit a display of varied colors through LED lighting.
