This building has really shot up quickly. The core should be passing up One Liberty Place pretty soon, right?

Comcast Tower

I love that last pic. Gives you a good idea of how tall this building is. my questions is it is supposed to top out at 975 feet.....why not find a way to add 25 more to go over 1,000?

Even if it's not a 1000 footer it is still the best in Philly.

Great pictures LeCom. I was not very excited about the design when I first
saw it, but now I can't wait to see the glass go up.

Excellent photos LeCom

Good to see glass finally going up. In a few months time the outer shell should be mainly complete.
