SEATTLE —

Crews started painting the top of the Space Needle green Sunday.

 

KIRO 7 cameras captured a shot of the structure as it slowly transformed to its new look.

 

The Space Needle held a competition to decide a new design for the top of the needle for the next six months.

 

After public voting, the winning design was called Trees.

 

After the six-month period, the Needle will return to its standard white.
