271 17th Street Building Signage

One of largest exterior signage projects managed by Leapley, 271 17th Street is visible to commuters travelling through midtown Atlanta and Atlantic Station. Leapley helped to deliver the iconic branding at all four elevations at the top of the 25-story building.

Totaling 32.5-feet across, the internally illuminated aluminum channel numbers are each 18-feet tall with a depth of eight inches. The four sets of channel numbers provide unmatched visibility of the tallest Class A tower at Atlantic Station.
