They're probably going to rebrand. I bet the first demo move will be taking down the sign. In the future, one neighbour will say to the other, "you know this is actually Danbrook One, right?" "WTF?!"

 

Always lots of rumours in town but one that keeps getting play about Danbrook is that the building cannot be 'repaired' and needs to come down.

 

Will see I guess.

if you just want to reuse as many letters from the sign as possible, the largest single word is DOORKNOB at 8 letters.

BOOKEND is pretty good at 7 letters.

 

using all the letters and going two words:

what's with naming residential buildings anyway?

 

even big prestigious office buildings are often/mostly named for their address.  But I guess if your address is the tony part of Manhattan that in and of itself is prestigious.

It's a very old marketing practice. Think about the 1960s/70s apartment boom here, you had to differentiate your product so you'd come up with a theme, some Spanish-style rough stucco arches and wrought iron and call it El Diablo or something.

I actually do not think there is El Diablo in town but there are definitely some other Spanish one and two word names where you have the exposed brick arch then mostly white stucco.

 

Danboork One's biggest issue is probably not the expense of the sign change.  But one thing they could try first is changing the sign then just open up again and get a business license.  maybe they will catch Langford napping.
