Because Equitable is no longer the anchor tenant, and therefore are not paying for the privilege any more. Georgia's Own is.
There, that was easy.
I don't recall such a hue and cry when they removed the PanAm signage from their Park Avenue headquarters.
Change is inevitable.

if they want to change it to georgia's own that's fine but they ought to keep the block letter styling and lighting design of the equitable logo. the georgia's own logo is just terrible.

They own (or lease) it. They should be able to do with it as they please, provided it is within code. It's not as if they are densifying a single family neighborhood with duplexes, apartments, and the like. :-)

Fair enough. The lettering did suit the building style.

Because both buildings and their images are to this day still strongly identified with the signage that they carried on their facades for decades.
The bolded statement speaks for itself.

What is it with you coming up with goofy names for everything? It's not the name anyone has a problem with, it's the design of their logo.
