A well-known law firm in Grand Rapids, Mich., would like to put up street-level signs to help clients find their five-floor downtown offices.
But that’s not possible, because the bank from which Warner Norcross & Judd rents its office space has already taken up all the available ground-floor sign space, reports the Grand Rapids Press.
Although the firm had sought an exception, city planners unanimously decided that Fifth Third’s signs, which already exceed city restrictions, are all that the building will be allowed, according to the newspaper. “It strikes me that they could just tell people they’re in the Fifth Third Building,” says Planning Commissioner David Soet.
