Considering Philadelphia got a pretty late start on skyscrapers 1986 or so they have a great skyline. Of course the historic 200 ' buildings help.Lots of potential. Love the uniform pyramid look. Hopefully Philly keeps bombing the core with height and taper the edges.

A few shots from my 30th floor roof deck towards my neighbor......the Comcast Center. This 1st photo isn't mine.....probably from Brad Maule.







This one is from September 3rd......when the pool closes for the season.

Bryson thanks for the photos. Is that building condos or rentals?

If they are rentals do you mind me asking how much the average rent is, whats the vacancy rate? Thanks.

The Comcast tower looks better in person than from these pictures ... really. Its very silvery, glassy and translucent. It works well with the other highrises. Believe me ...
