According to a report from Danny Ecker, the Cubs are installing the third outfield sign at Wrigley Field. The ‘Nuveen’ sign, one of the Cubs Legacy Partners, is having their sign put up this week.
Danny Ecker reported Tuesday that the ‘Nuveen’ sign is a “513-square-foot script sign” and is being installed beyond the left field bleachers between the foul pole and the video board. This will be the third of six outfield signs that were approved by the Commission on Chicago Landmarks.
According to Crain’s Chicago Business, the sign is “the primary asset in a new sponsorship deal with the team signed last year with Chicago-based mutual fund manager Nuveen Investments.”
The ‘Nuveen’ sign joins the Budweiser and Wintrust signs that sit atop the right and left field video boards. The Cubs received approval in 2014 to install a total of six outfield signs, including the two video boards.
Danny Ecker explained the Cubs have three more signs to install at Wrigley Field. Those signs “are expected to be located above the bleachers in right centerfield and in foul territory beyond the left and right foul poles.”
The ‘Nuveen’ sign has nine-foot high letters and is 57 feet wide. The sign will impact the view of the rooftop at 1032 Waveland Ave., which is owned by the Ricketts family.
Drawings of the ‘Nuveen’ sign were not included.
The Cubs and Nuveen Investments announced the Legacy Partnership last April.
