I'm guessing I won't like this building when it's done.. and how it does not blend in the skyline from some angles.. the best angle will probably be from the side of the spire from where it seems thinnest and won't hide the other buildings that much.
Really hoping, though, it's one of those buildings that the renders don't do it justice.. but.. lets wait and see..

I agree. So far, it doesn't appear very attractive. It's too wide, and the height isn't really there.
I should wait until it's finished but so far, the original Comcast tower stands more attractive.

This looks alot like the Heron Tower in London. Not exactly a favourite here either.

The Heron Tower is one of the most beautiful in the world. I would be very happy with a 1,121' Heron Tower in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, the CITC is no Heron Tower imo.

I am withholding judgement until it is completed.

BTW I don't think the Wilshire Grand is so glorious ... it's just okay ... and the CITC is taller!

What is the building located in the rail yards? Seems pretty isolated, but I didn't realize how many newer high rises there were in Philly, looks good. Also it looks like they have the same traffic nightmare the rest of us have.
