A NEW BEACON FOR THE GALLERIA SKYLINE
ATLANTA – A new, 100-foot-tall outdoor marquee stands tall and bright along Interstate 285 outside the Cobb Galleria Centre.
The iconic sign is state of the art and features a 25-foot tall and 48-foot wide LED display, almost double the size of the previous marquee, which stood in the same location. A third, vertical LED display faces I-285. In addition to a much larger screen, the sides and top of the sign feature fiber optic lights behind glass panels that can be programmed to shine in different colors. Current events at the Centre as well as advertising sold by Clear Channel Outdoor will be displayed on the sign.
“As the economic driver of Cobb County’s hospitality industry, it is important that we have an iconic state-of-the-art digital marquee on our campus,” said Michele Swann, General Manager and CEO of the Cobb-Marietta Coliseum & Exhibit Hall Authority, owner and operator of Cobb Galleria Centre. “The timing of this project will coincide nicely with the celebration of the Cobb Galleria Centre’s 25th anniversary in 2019.”
DeNyse Companies constructed the sign’s structure, and Formetco built the LED display panels.
