Looking forward to more pic updates (of my current U.S. fave u/c) jmhoriel & MDguy

Even though they are quite different in design, this and The Rose Rotana Hotel in Dubai (no city vs city or country vs country crap please) do share amazing sleekness alike...both soaring.

Kudos to the developers and the architects There's no evidence of cost-cutting yet and doubt there will be.

Looks like the "crown" is going to continue several more feet by the last photo, surely it will be well lit at night.

It's not the most extravagant building in the world... but its a nice addition to the skyline, and suits the area well.

well done Philly.
