Could they not have been bigger?  Like everything with this one ill proportioned.  Was hoping for more covering up of the hideous top section.

I think its due to how the logo is constructed, the flag part is set higher up than the font so there has to be more space above the font even though it looks weird.

I think it’s done well here. Signage shouldn’t be too big or it’ll take away from the architecture  (insert joke here) but in all seriousness, you just want it to get the job done without being over the top. Once the flag/field logo is added it will be perfect and will create synergy with the stadium signage for aerial shots as they pass by the building and then over the field.

Thought the rendering had the flag before and after BOA. May have removed one flag to increase font size. Looks good.

Nvm, looks like it was always 1 flag.

Still can't believe BofA put a tramp stamp on a building in its hometown.  So tacky.

Also, 1BAC is low-key a beautiful building.  Inside and out.

Blame 5/3 first then Regions then the ball really got going.  Ally will have their name up on their tower and Duke too.

Pretty certain the chronology is Grant Thornton, BB&T, 5/3, NASCAR, Ally (current building), *Chiquita add then subtract,  Regions, WeWork, and now BofA

^^Correct but we went a long time after Grant Thornton and BB&T then when 5/3 moved uptown about 10 years that is when it started rolling again.    We forgot Barings too! 

I don't want names on every building but most cities have a mix like we are now getting and many cities have many more named buildings than we ever had or will have.

Hey man, sometimes a tramp stamp can look damn sexy in the right place. This is one of the cases.

Of all of the signs, only NASCAR and WeWork are over the top, imo. All the rest are quite subtle.  No offense to those on here with connections to WeWork, but I **really** don’t like that sign. It’s too bold.

Well sometimes signs go up and sometimes they go down.  Remember the Chiquita logo and sign?  And yes I am afraid to say signs on buildings are here to stay forgot about existing Ally and NASCAR too. 

And Deloitte's name will be atop their Legacy 2 tower too.

I know we’re off topic here, and I’m not versed in the regulatory specifics of the sign ordinance, but it I were a corporation looking to get the most bang for my buck for a sign, I’d go with one that is not necessarily 500-700’ up in the air.  I think Regions, NASCAR, and WeWork are getting their money’s worth even if I think a few of those are a bit too bold for my taste.

And yes, Deloitte will also have great exposure. Honeywell too, or whoever ultimately locates in that LU spot across from the stadium. To clarify I’m not anti-sign but I do have preferences.

NASCAR over the top and tacky with colorful advertisements, you don't say...

NASCAR has changed their sign on top of their building, it's a lot more tasteful.

Actually the first one was pretty much clear, then they added color later, then changed it again when their logo changed. When it opened it was one of the most discreet and tasteful signs on any tower in the country.

 

Agreed, their first sign was pretty nice.
