I think the flat roof skyscrapers had more to do with the building code in LA calling for helipads on tops of tall buildings than an actual flat roof.

A quick google search tells me that the LA helipad requirement was lifted a couple of years ago, actually.

While Philly airport does not have any kind of "wow" factor or architectural uniqueness it is always ranked in the top ten in North America for customer satisfaction. It is well designed, very easy to get in and out of, and has multiple transportation options for getting into town. SEPTA trains stop frequently at each and every terminal and there is really no need to take an expensive taxi to get into Center City.

I fly often, and I dread flying into Chicago, LA, Miami, Atlanta or San Francisco.

There will be 24 diagonal braces on the eastern,18th Street side of CITC. After only 1 appearing for months, 2 more were added the past two days.

I would've added pics, but am not allowed until post #11 apparently. Boo!

The diagonal braces are being installed now. About 10 of them now. They look great, very sharp. Cladding is excellent on this building.

So great to see that happening, I thought they were about to leave them flat, while on the renders we could see them more prominent. Now I have no doubt that the final look will be lovely.

The building has almost an Art Deco vibe going, doesn't it?
