San Carlos' Circle Star building seeks new signs
January 31, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Call it a star sign, of sorts.

The tenants of 1 Circle Star Way, a county-owned office building in San Carlos, are seeking permission to install two lit signs facing the freeway.

The request is actually made by sign company Ad Art Incorporated which Monday night will ask the San Carlos Planning Commission to approve the two wall-mounted signs for Sprint and SoftBank.

The proposed signs are internally lit individual channel letters bearing the SoftBank logo on the southern building side and the Sprint logo to the north. The proposed Sprint sign is roughly 5 feet and 7.62 inches high by 13 feet and 5 inches wide. The letters will be white acrylic and the logo yellow. The proposed SoftBank sign is roughly 6 feet and 1.75 inches high and 27 feet and 4.5 inches wide with white lettering and logos.

City staff found the signs consistent with the city’s sign ordinance but its size and location visible from Highway 101 requires a design review for approval.

The office building and its twin, 2 Circle Star Way, are both four stories with parking and owned by San Mateo County which purchased them in 2011 for $40 million. The county originally planned to relocate several departments and 911 dispatch but downsized needs and financial concerns led it to instead rent out the properties. The county is now also looking at potentially selling the towers.

SoftBank is a telecom company which owns a majority of Sprint Nextel.

The San Carlos Planning Commission meets 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3 in Council Chambers, 600 Elm St., San Carlos.

Daily Journal Quick Poll
 
What do you think of Cuba and the United States re-establishing diplomatic ties?

It's about time
We'll see how it goes
Makes sense
Don't like it
I guess the Cold War is over
Does this mean Cuban cigars will be cheaper now?
