The Comcast Center tower is a perfect compliment to this skyline. The more complete this tower gets, the more I love it. 8/10

we'll probably need some new pics for the first page soon, those look so crusty compared to the new ones with Comcast in it

I think the 2 pointy buildings next to each other should have remained the 2 highest buildings downtown, they are so great and recognizable!. The new taller building uc is very nice but i think he should have been build further away from the two. Philly gets a 9.5.

Indeed, the third picture on the first post is from the late 1980s…

Here are some lovely pictures taken from phillyskyline.com. The ones MDguy posted are great too.
