Chad, what camera did you use for that particular shot?

So far, the Canon EOS (Digital Remel XT) was recommended (yes, I'm writing this down so I can properly research).

It looks like the interior on many of the lower floors is also complete. They have started to install the hanging gardens in the lobby and work is progressing on the outdoor plaza also. I imagine most of the concourse is complete as well although that is completely behind wraps right now. I believe Comcast is scheduled to begin moving in later in the year.

From this angle it seems as if the comcast has a antenna attatched to the top making it about 325 meters tall. Although its just a crane.

I love the way that crane looks like a mast. I wish the building had a mast, even if it were symbolic, especially in light of the business that Comcast is in.

I was thinkin the same thing a little while back. I really hope Philly breaks the 1,000ft. mark soon though.

Heres how it might turn out - Comcast Center tops out - Philly wins a major sports trophy. Soon, there will be plans to build another tower higher than that one, and then there will be a new curse on the city, called the "Curse of bad cable"
