Night Lights Shader

Hi all.

I need to make a shader which mimics the buildings in the scene below.

My scene will have a lot of large geometric type buildings, and I'm trying to make a shader which will put some point lights onto the geometry without actually having to use lights. So it's important that they looks like lights and have a glow on them. So far I have everything set up how I want, but I just can't get my shader to look like night time buildings. It looks too flat.

So I want a shader with some surface bumps, and a kind of matte metal as a base. All driven by fractals and textures. And then a kind of speckled light effect over the top that glows slightly.

Or even points that are pure white, so I can add the glow to the images in post?

Anyone can give me some advice with this one?

Oh, and Happy Christmas and all :)
