LA, Miami, and possibly Austin could see supertalls built this decade. Philly is going through a wrenching retrenchment in the commercial office market downtown. Rents are too low to build and tennants are leaving for surrounding areas. ACC would be empty right now if it were built.

Philly only problem is NYC is 2 hours away. It's going take Philly base companies like Comcast, to get a supertall built in the city.

Well, they talked about how LA, Miami and other cities could get supertalls in the future so I wondered if Phoenix couldn't get one too

All of those cities have supertalls proposed or already approved. While Phoenix on the other hand does not.

I'll say the answer to that question is no. Because if he did, he would know this building is dead on it's face.

That building looks so Libeskindish. Who was supposed to be the architect for this?

Phoenix should try building a 500 footer before building an 1000 footer


I believe Chicago could pull another off this decade, we may not know of it yet.

San Francisco will also build one.

So that's LA, Miami, San Fran, Chicago and NYC who could/will build supertalls in the near future.
