In just a couple block area, a lot of things kept under wraps for the past few weeks are suddenly visible. The plastic is starting to come off of the Loyalty Building as its converted into the Hilton Garden Inn hotel on Broadway and Michigan St. In multiple places downtown the blue tarps have come off, and BMO Harris Bank signage has replaced the last traces of the M&I name. Also, Sosh, a social media agency, has opened their new office in the Wells Building at the corner of Wisconsin Ave and Milwaukee St.

    Originally I wasn’t a big fan of BMO Harris… but after seeing the new signage on the M&I Bank tower, I am starting to see them in a different light. It’s amazing how little subtleties can drastically change the appearance of a building. I have also admired that new signage on the King Ave. BMO location. Kudos to BMO for a job well done. Now if only the Cousins Sub underneath the SOSH company would take notice the value of keeping appearances ‘fresh’. But that’s a different story.
