Wrapped Up in Noncompliance

Back in October I wrote about the ugly supergraphics at 2nd & Spring. It amazed me that a building in the shadow of City Hall would put up the illegal advertising and it would remain up for several weeks before gradually coming down.

But when it did come down, I figured that was the end of it.

Not so.

This weekend I saw that again the building was wrapped, this time in a gaudy orange cell phone ad. Once again the ad is illegal, and once again the owners have been served with an order to comply by Building and Safety.

The real question is: Are the ad revenues greater than whatever fines the building is getting from the City?
