The new neon Grove entry marker was inspired from historic, retro signs that are seen in popular, pedestrian friendly communities in San Diego, California.  These signs are hung by rods and cables, rather than the arched-truss signs that are most often constructed today.

St. Louis’ Newest Landmark

The successful rejuvenation of the Grove continues and now will be in lights.
After 2 years of planning which included design, engineering, fundraising, and approvals; a $60,000, double‐faced neon sign will be spanning Manchester Avenue just west of Vandeventer Avenue marking the entry to the area. The sign measures 24ft wide and 11ft tall and is suspended 30 feet in the air.  Installation of the sign will occur throughout the day and should be completed this afternoon.
The goal of the entry marker is to attract visitors to the many new and established restaurants, night clubs, and retail venues within the area, as well as enhance the identity of the Grove as a diverse, appealing and pedestrian‐friendly experience. The entry marker will compliment the $3.5 million streetscape enhancement that is currently underway. Area businesses are so excited about the new entry marker that they have already adopted the sign’s design as the logo for the area. Read more…
