That has to be one of the oddest cores I've ever seen…what's the reasoning behind all the zig-zagging? Still a great building nonetheless.

Sorry you had to wait 2 months for an answer, but here goes.

The highrise and skyscraper skyline is not as condensed as you imagine. Like Atlanta and some other cities, Philly has more than one "cluster" of skyscrapers ... what you see is only the Center City ("downtown") cluster, but across the Schuykill River in University City there is a second cluster and now a third cluster is appearing on North Broad Street near Temple University. There are also random highrise buildings scattered around town, a few right on the Delaware River in or near the Old City.

Philly does have tight zoning laws, but the more powerful real estate developers manages to bypass them. Sometimes handsome old historic buildings are demolished quickly and under the cover of nightfall or holiday weekends for luxury residential highrise buildings. For a city that prides itself on it's history - Philadelphia is the only World Heritage City in the US - the people who run this city are often indifferent to historic preservation and saving 150 or 200 year old buildings.

Philadelphia IS a very historic city. But it's not the only UNESCO World Heritage City in the U.S.

There are actually 5:
Charlottesville: Monticello and the University of Virginia (1987)
New York: Statue of Liberty (1984)
Philadelphia: Independence Hall (1979)
San Antonio: San Antonio Missions (2015)
San Juan: La Fortaleza and San Juan National Historic Site (1983)

You can say that Philadelphia was the 1st UNESCO World Heritage City in the US (that's accurate). But it's not the only one anymore.

Either way, I'm very happy with Philadelphia's current boom. A great city befitting of a great skyline.

You are mistaken.

You listed 5 World Heritage SITES.

Let us be precise.

Philadelphia is the only UNESCO World Heritage CITY in the United States. New York, Charlottesville, San Antonio, and San Juan are not World Heritage Cities.

Google it if you don't believe me: Only US city that is a World Heritage City.

I was wondering the same thing.
Maybe it's just that some people like to keep things simple, others like to make things as complicated as possible

However you put it, Philadelphia is not alone. San Antonio is a UNESCO World Heritage City as well: http://www.ovpm.org/en/cities/
