If anything I'd expect the ticker to be closer to the ground... just my opinion...
Finally that television... oh geez. I don't know if it's in the right place for everyone to see as the SkyTrain station will be an obstacle from viewing on the viaducts... if anything it'll disturb the residents such that they may just very well do a dark blank wall at night, which would be a waste...
Well ,we are at odds, haha!
Don't know how you can not like the ticker, it is something unique in Vancouver (actually really sad how few tickers we have) in fact the largest one in our entire city I think is on a TD Bank in Richmond!
Of course such a ticker would have been far better suited for say..........the corner of Robson and Granville, but oh well
I will take it here.
And honestly, if that screen disturbs residents, then maybe they should not live downtown. Honestly, it is very low to the ground and is a decent distance away from the nearest residents, no one will be looking directly at it.
