Philadelphia's skyline is very classy like Minneapolis. You can pinpoint the beautiful buildings in the skyline. Are there any under construction skyscrapers that will somewhat significantly change the skyline next year or the coming years?

American Commerce Center, a 1500 ft. supertall has been approved and is financed. It just needs an anchor tenant so construction can begin.

I can't wait for the first supertall in Philly to start construction. The skyline would be even more amazing than it already is
