I'm pretty sure I saw the kiva permit that said it was LED.

Perhaps it's a larger display for the Flying Kansas Citians?  :lol:

If it's LED, I think it would look awesome!  And I agree with GRID, there needs to one at the TSC.

600-amp service for the sign...is that LED levels?  Seems like a lot but I know nothing of electrical service.

Did we ever get a verdict on what the strange rectangular box going over 670 is for?  My money had been on Sprint Center signage.

You absolutely will NOT be seeing this from I-70.  I hate it.  What a piece of garbage so far.  Normally I'm the "wait and see" type, but there is nothing that can be done to improve on this.

The new AT&T sign seems small for the building...  That would be cool at a HUGE LED screen

So small that I hadn't even noticed it while looking at the picture.

I wish AT&T would rent out, and the City let them, LED and other advertising signage on the side of the Longlines Building.  It would help turn the Power & Light Building into a mini-Times Square-like area.  It would create more visual excitement in the District.
There is no fifth destination.

The southern most billboard had an LCD screen placed the other day but it wasn't running.  I asked my neighbor who is the operations manager of the SC and he said that they are just going to be big video boards that advertise for SC events.

I wondered myself about that.  Not that I'm a big Joe's fan or anything, it just seemed really random.

I read the article and I think they were just making the statement that those companies who have supported the arena will get advertising on the bilboard but it won't be open to just anybody, such as Joe's Crabshack, to call up and pay for an add.

The new LED billboard is up and running tonight--super bright (think Kenny Rogers Chicken Sign)
