Weren't you told to leave your logic by the router?! This is the internet, son. We don't do reason here.

Well, Foster's "masterpiece" is the Gherkin, which IMO is ugly, but nonetheless a London icon by now.
So this might not be the most attractive design - IMO it's neutral to good - but it will still probably be an icon for the city in the long run.
The glass is what's going to make a difference now. I hope they choose the right one.

I can't wait until I start seeing some serious steel wrapping around the boring concrete core.

We're having a week-long intense heat wave here in Philly - over 90 degrees several days in a row. Must be really hellish on the guys working outside in the sun.

We are constantly being teased about the actual height of this thing.

In yesterday's Facebook page called Building Philadelphia, someone asked if there was any truth to the rumor that the height will be increased another 20 feet and another floor added on. The answer someone else said, with an air of authority I might add, "For obvious reasons we are not prepared to make that information public."

What does that mean?

What are the "obvious" reasons?

Great picture. I like the church dome peeking through the construction!

Please post more pictures.

Are we going to see the building rising at any point, or is it just a core?

Maybe tomorrow or Sunday the Pope will bless this building.

Anything is possible!
