Spoke Apartments Aggressive Signage

Anyone else bothered by the massive SpokeApartments.com posters blocking the skyline views? I am wondering if there are signage zoning rules that apply, at least for the removable ones

    Brand New Apartments for Rent in Chicago's River West | Spoke Apartments
    This gorgeous two-tower community in the River West neighborhood features apartments and town homes with instant access to the city of Chicago via the Blue Line subway and Milwaukee Avenue's "Hipster Highway."
    https://spokeapartments.com
  • You might have a case with zoning laws. My condo building dealt with something similar several years ago when the apartment next door (same builder) put a sign on *our* roof. I don’t know what ended up being the resolution but you could certainly check if they are zoned for signage, I think.

  • KB

    @heather more for knowledge sake than actual litigation, and good point :) @kris Yes true, I was thinking more about the hanging sign on the east side that spans several stories. Thoughts?
