Application to Amend Sign By-law - 520 West Georgia Street
Henriquez Partners Architects, on behalf of Westbank Corp. and TELUS, have applied to the City of Vancouver to amend the Sign By-law to permit an 7.5 m x 11 m media sign on the west facade of the building at 520 West Georgia Street, facing Seymour Street:
- The proposed sign is to be located between the 16th and 18th floors and is retractable; it will be lowered dusk to 11 pm daily;
- The sign will use rear projection technology which is only viewable in low light conditions;
- Sign content will showcase video art and community programming and announcements, with limited brand recognition for businesses at TELUS Gardens.
