Placement looks just fine to me.

And to those saying it should be placed on the brow, can you see how "small" it would seem when viewed from below? I think the first image posted by Thomax today illustrates that.

I still would've liked it placed a little further up - maybe another 20 feet or so, but it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would that far back.

Need some nights shots now.

You can see just how bad the placement is in the video above ^^^
When the car is moving you really have to crank your neck to see it or potentially miss it .... Shouldn't be that hard to notice something like this ....it should be more obvious
I've driven by many times and it doesn't get an easier

I'll kindly disagree on this point. Hamilton does everything geared to car drivers. I'm happy this lines up with the angle of the building and has ample pedestrian space around it for pics/hanging out etc.... we need a couple food trucks and live music in this plaza more often.

What we really need is for drivers to keep their eyes on the road. If drivers want to interact with the sign they should park it and walk.

I drove by it today, looks nice placement is a little weird but I can see why they did put it there.
