This is coming along very nicely. Just what Philadelphia needs to improve its skyline.

Comcast Center Skyline

I was able to get some great shots from City Hall Tower. It was about 4:30pm and the sun was just setting. The partly cloudy sky made a nice backdrop. Here is another photo showing more of the skyline. One Liberty Place, Mellon Bank Center and the Bell Atlantic (Verizon) Tower all are visible in this shot. Cira Centre, the new 28 story office tower by 30th Street Station, is also visible.

Those lucky office workers in the Cira Centre will get the best views of the Comcast Center.

From SSP:

Almost 250 meters now to the top of the core, another 50 to go! Counting 1LP spire or not this will soon be the highest thing on this skyline!
