The projecting indicators are for the Bay and Laura road corners of the constructing and are 12 toes tall by 3 toes broad, in response to DDRB assembly paperwork launched Sept. 3.
The rooftop signal dealing with Bay Avenue is 30 toes broad by 5 toes tall.
Downtown Funding Authority employees recommends the DDRB approve the indicators, stating that they’re in keeping with close by and historic Downtown signage.

The dimensions and placement of the signage is complementary to the constructing.”
Based on plans filed with DDRB by New Jersey-based agency Philadelphia Signal Co., the Areas indicators will illuminate at night time.
