Large Building Sign Done with Photoshop & Illustrator

I've scoured these forums and fond some aspects of the answer I'm looking for, but not all.

Brief synopsis of my project: I'm creating a large sign for a building, 16 feet X 4 feet. One of the logos that will be on there has to be done in Photoshop because of how I need to color it. The rest of the project is in Illustrator and will then be saved to .pdf for printing and 300 dpi of course.

As far as the image being done in Photoshop, is there no way around having to create it at the literal real-world size? As in working at 16' X 4' at 300 dpi in Photoshop? Obviously this size makes it difficult to work.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'd consider scaling the project to 1/2 or 1/4 scale, including any linked resources (TIF, PSD, whatever), considering the overall art size and processing power.

300dpi for large format projects is not necessary. 150dpi, 100dpi, 72dpi and even lower will work. 50ft, 50mph is the rule.

I should note that in my original post I meant to say 300 PPI, not DPI.
