Can't wait for this awesome tower to be completed and finally put an end to Comcast Center's cruel reign as city's tallest. Go Philly!

Sorry to hear that. This design is al lot less beautiful. Though it will be the tallest building, i think de design is much poorer than comcast centre.

And to be honest. I'am afraid it wille ruin the wonderful skyline Philly has at the moment. But i will wait for the final result to judge that.

Yeah, I think this design is below Comcast Center's. I dont think it will destroy the skyline. It's just an average boxy design with a slightly weird spire design.

Philly has a weird skyline. There are actually a lot of buildings but for some reason from most angles it looks like it has like 4 buildings.

Pennsylvania's Next Tallest Building Climbing High in New Photos

Quote:
In 2008, mass media company Comcast established a new headquarters in Philadelphia. The 58-storey, 279-metre Comcast Center became the tallest building in the city and in the state of Pennsylvania. Now, Comcast is about to break their own record, as construction on the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center continues towards its ultimate 342-metre height.

Whether you like Comcast Center or not, it's hard to argue that it made the city's skyline lose a bit of balance with its flat dark top. Innovation Center's spire will bring it back

Bottom of the top ten? Yea right.
Oops. Okay, I stand corrected. I just figured that besides New York and Chicago, cities with better skylines included LA, Seattle, Miami, and San Francisco.

I would like to see your list.

Well, not just Center City. It's especially true in my neighborhood of University City. But some other areas: Northern Liberties, Fishtown, Manayunk, Roxborough, East Falls, and some parts of South Philly like East Passyunk real estate is booming and prices are soaring.

For the record I live just several blocks west of the "Ivy League" University of Pennsylvania in a part of University City called Spruce Hill. My home is a 1895 Victorian "Twin" (a semi-detached or duplex type townhouse) in the Second Empire Mansard style. It has three floors and six bedrooms. In 2002 I bought it for $188,000. A similar one half a block away just sold for $525,000 - they were anxious to sell it first listed for $565K but they came down only after one month. Mine is possibly worth more because it's one of very few that still has all the original stained glass windows, three fireplaces, etc. This neighborhood is in the "Sadie Alexander Catchment Area" which means it's one of the best school districts in Philly.

Been that way for many years, especially when the universities like Temple, Drexel and Penn decided to buy housing out to create new student housing. I grew up in Wynnefield and I know that St. Joseph's University has been buying houses like crazy for the last 10 years as student housing. My bro is about to retire from the PLCB and come to Florida, he says if St. Joe's offers him the right price his crib is gone...

My brother also told me that the gentrification is moving toward the neighborhoods besides Fairmount Park, most of the housing on Parkside Avenue has been bought out and gentrified...

And so it goes.
