building=* or building:part=*

Useful combination
Status: de facto


The colour of the facade of a building or building part. Mostly used for 3D building visualization.

The value syntax is identical to that of colour=*.

That is, you can use use hexadecimal notation, e.g. #FFFFFF for white, or colour names. Note, however, that the interpretation of colour names differs between different 3D rendering applications.

Be careful not to use building:color=* instead. It is considered a typo.
