Hey guys. I'm movin to Philly in 5 months and am very excited about this new addition to the skyline! I think it will be GREAT! This is my favorite picture of Philadelphia's skyline. As you can see on the right side of the pic the Cira Center is half-way complete. As I'm aware now, it's basically done? I was wondering if anyone has a picture or could take a picture from the same spot that the below pic was taken at to show what the skyline looks like now with the Cira Center completed. Also...can someone please point out where exactly in the picture the Comcast Center will be when it's finished? Thanks!

Please remember that this is a thread on Comcast Centre, so let's not go off-topic with other projects, and Circa Center was already completed a while ago.

He just asked a question Talby, that's all. You've certainly taken to looking after a thread you didn't create. Also, watch you Centers/res

BigDan, I've added a little massing to that photo just to give reference where it's going. Nothing scientific or to scale or any of that, just to show you where it's going and about how it would probably look in the skyline.

Not to be a wise-ass but you're posting updates of nothing.

Aren't there buildings in New York you can cover?

The core itself is just below street level. The concrete placeforms are what's above the ground.

This wont be the case in the next week or so.
