This sign is certainly not the worst thing in the world though, I don't want to be too curmudgeonly or a buzzkill on this positive development.
I think you’re wrong on the last points. The whole reason why Morgan is building a new building is to impress, and be a 21st century law firm. I bet putting the logo on top is something they very much wanted, and don’t see it as tacky—but a sort of chest-puffing. You want to be here, type of thing.

^^also speaking of signage, WSFS is in the process of replacing the Beneficial sign atop 1818 Market.
