    from looking through the totius web site, it is possible that the report from lum, is in relation to one of the sites available on the 4 times square building. the totius web site refers to a sign, which is 55ft x 55 ft, which happens to be about 300sqm - which is the figure mentioned in the lum report. the following from the totius page



    Location:
    4 Times Square: The 48-story Conde Nast Building at the "Crossroads of the World" - Broadway and 42nd Street

    Launch Date:
    October 2003: Coinciding with the debut of the 360 ft. broadcast antenna replacing the WTC antenna lost on 9/11 (Ads will be seen in nationwide print and electronic media coverage of the event)

    Sign Specs:
    - 4 signs facing N, S, E, and W

    .................

    it is easy to get confused, and think that the lum report, refers to another site, because somewhere else on the totius web site, the following is quoted - which refers to a sign 70ft x 70 ft

    "The building, also known as the headquarters of Conde Nast, is on the verge of getting its sky-high signage leased and lit. A deal to take the four, 70x70-foot tall signs is close to being inked with a U.S. company that will install special Australian-designed LED video technology and then lease the colorful computer generated boards to corporate advertisers."

    i may be wrong, but i would tend to think that it is one and the same. if it is, then it is a good start, and we look forward to the other three sides of the building, having a lum sign
