#102 l Two Liberty Place l PHILADELPHIA l 258m l 58fl

Two Liberty Place
Philadelphia, USA


HEIGHT: 258m/846 feet
FLOORS: 58fl
COMPLETION: 1990
ARCHITECT: Murphy/Jahn Architects

Two Liberty Place is one of Philadelphia’s premier office towers. The property is part of the Murphy/Helmut Jahn designed Liberty Place Development, which also includes the nearly identical One Liberty Place, a 1.2 million square foot office tower, a 144,000 square foot upscale retail concourse, and a Westin Hotel.

The property is located in the Market Street West submarket between Market and Chestnut Streets in the heart of Philadelphia’s CBD. The location offers superb conveniences with its close proximity to hotels, the finest retail on Walnut Street and the City's most exquisite dining options at Rittenhouse Square. Access to public transportation is excellent with the 30th Street Station nearby and Suburban Station within walking distance of the property, both of which offer service to Philadelphia’s International Airport and SEPTA commuter rail services.

9/10. What a modern skyscraper should be. Not as cool as one, but still pretty damn cool.

Love it's design and colours and how it thins towards the top.

In some ways, it is quite similar to Chicago's Two Prudential Plaza.

8.5/10

I'm not sure why, but I dont like it much. Maybe its becos it seems fat at the base or it just looks inferior next to One Liberty.

The only good thing is the facade.

Still PoMo gem, but not nearly as well proportioned as One Liberty, which isn't proportioned all that well itself. Both are much too portly.


6.5/10

8/10 - I like the facade that dances with the light, but while the spire and setbacks are nice, the building is too chunky, especially with that "bustle" on one side - they needed to make a larger base and a slimmer tower. And did they run out of money before they finished the spire?
Not bad, but not as impressive as its twin.

reminds me of the Two Pru in Chicago...but it's more stubby than the one in Chicago...and 1 Liberty has a better design but overall I'd give it an 8/10..

I think it is too massive at the bottom, they should of started slimming it out way before. The bottom is not all that great, but I do appreciate the top of the building. 7.0/10

It looks clunky and awkward from some angles, and sleek and dominating from others. That "knub" spire has always irritated me but I still love the building. It was actually the first "skyscraper" I ever recognized during it's construction.
