Atlanta OKs huge new outdoor ad display

Published on .

The Atlanta city council approved a 55-foot-tall by 150-foot-wide mega display for Turner Sports' new Philips Arena, due to open in September across from Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park. The display sits in front of the parking deck and above 3,800 square feet of retail space. It will include a 25-foot diameter clock (two feet larger than London's Big Ben) and a 22-by-17-foot video screen above an equal-size panel featuring the name or logo of arena sponsors.
