What the Helen of Troy is this Glowing Red Cube?

“It’s the glowing red thing just to the left of the Hilton. Seems to be on the same plane as the Old Post Office?”

“Dear PoPville,

Do you or Popville know of a building downtown that has a huge light cube on its roof? It’s possibly around 17th and Penn, but the perspective from my roof deck makes it hard to tell. Recently, it’s been lit up in red and white, and more recently it’s been green and orange stripes.

If anyone has an idea about what this could be, I’d appreciate it! It’s been driving us crazy.”
