Two cranes are going to be going up this weekend. One on the side on top of the new steel, and one on the core.

Chris - we can't see files that are loaded on your computer - you need to upload them - say, to Imgur, and then link those.

Since I live in Philly less than 2 miles from the construction site I promise to do a little investigative research.

Skyscraper fanatics (or, as we say here in Philly - "phanatics") are obsessive about building heights, and even a 20 foot height increase is good news!

Okay, I promised to do a little research on the suggestion there might be a slight increase in the height of the CITC building.

This is what I have learned so far.

Recently Sir Norman Foster was in town and gave a talk about the building. He made no mention of a height increase. The place where the talk was given - the American Institute of Architects (AIA) of Philadelphia just unveiled a scale model display of the building, repeating the old stats: 59 floors, 1121 foot height, etc. You can see it at their book store at 1218 Arch Street, not far from City Hall.

Okay, so the claim can be dismissed as rumor.

Until ... earlier today ...

Are you ready?

I spoke to a construction engineer and manager, not just a worker, who said: "it's going to be 1145 feet, not 1127; it will have 60 floors, not 59."

What ???????

He explained, the height increase is necessary because of mechanical machinery on the the top. So why didn't Sir Norman mention this? "Who knows? Maybe he thinks the time isn't right to announce it ... or maybe he thinks it's insignificant and not worth announcing."

So there you have it.

We still are not sure, but there is at least a shred of evidence it might happen.
