Marriott signs going up at HarborCenter in downtown Buffalo

The first of two large-letter Marriott signs outside the HarborCenter is expected to be completed this week, and the entire job installing the signs should be done by next week, according to the company working on the signs.

Curtis Martin, who works for Flexlume Signs, said each large sign takes about three days to complete, but weather and other conditions can extend the time it takes to install the large letters.

“We actually had to get special engineering to handle the wind load,” he said.

Martin said installation of the signs began Saturday. In addition to the large-letter signs outside the building, he said the company also is working on a few other signs on the interior and at the ground floor of the building.

The hotel is scheduled to open Labor Day weekend.
