This weekend we went to the philly area, just for a quick roadtrip to diggerland for my 5 year old son. As we passed through downtown I excitedly said to my wife "see that building under construction? It's going to be the tallest building in the country outside NYC and Chicago! And and and, see the one next to it? THAT is currently the tallest building outside NYC or Chicago! Ain't that cool?

Her response - "uh, ok?"

Some people just don't get it. My son thought it was cool.

Guess I was mistaken, but she wouldn't care either way

I believe it's currently (or will soon be) the 335-meter tall Wilshire Grand Center in Los Angeles, which topped out recently.

The Comcast Technology Center looks like it's already taller than the Comcast Center.

You're right, I forgot that one topped out. Thanks for the save.

Okay, back to Comcast & Philly...

Some people think CTC is cheating by including the "blade" or "crown" or "spire" that will bring it's height up to 342 meters (1,121 feet).

Really wish the roof of this building was at least 30 meters less or 30 meters more than it is. Not a big fan of the highest buildings of a city forming plateaus. On the other hand, this building is turning out great. The facade is very nice. Philadelphia may not have a very large number of tall buildings, but the ones that it does have are of very high quality. Among the nicest in the country in my opinion. Philadelphia's skyline is very underrated. The city in general is underrated.

It looks a bit like New York's 3 WTC from some angles

If you look at the height in the thread title, he's right.
If we ignore "roof or antenna in the height" debates.

Gunner was pointing out that there are taller buildings than the first Comcast tower (the one with the square top), not this new one. You are right that this one will beat them all with its spire.
