This is a solid design. It could use some more refinement in terms of facade imo. This is gonna bring thousands of jobs to Philly.

This looks more like Richard Rogers designed it rather than Norman Foster, especially with the exposed z-bracing

I think the facade is fine, but the proportions are just terrible; it literally makes me want to throw up. They are so awkward!

The design is B-. The problem is it looks like it's 150m, not 342

The Rocky steps view will look even better.

This building looks fine. I don't love the design, but it is edgy and will probably grow on me. I am more a fan of One and Two Liberty than either if the two Comcast towers.

I really like the side with the spire! The opposite end... not so much

It's not THE best design ever, but it's solid and will probably age quite well :}

Form clearly followed function with this one. This is going to be quite literally, a vertical media factory.
