See if you can find that in the design guidelines for this tower. It might read something like this:

"Rising to an architectural peak of 1121 ft, the top of this tower is adorned by a tapering white spire representing a majestic flip of the bird towards its neighboring regional city, Pittsburgh."

Amazing skyline-enhancer! Philly won't be the same city as before when Comcast will be completely built. Congrats from Milan, Italy.

Wow, great project! This tower will be a great addition to the skyline. I would love to see a tower like this in my own city.

Hope this is not off topic:

Philly was named today the first (and only) city in the United States as a World Heritage City.
