That doesn’t belong in .bb1, it goes in .bb2 as the request asked

Then set it as the background-color of .bb2.

However, there is a problem with the entry, as well. Look at the example below and notice what’s missing.

.bb1a {
  ...
  ...
  background-color: var(--building-color1);
}

Thanks. I missed that the first time. Thanks!
