Almost finished!!!

The crane on top is now gone. It's almost complete. When will tenants start moving in? 2 months? 3 months?

I hope you don't mind but I couldn't instantly find the vid (crappy YouTube updating) so I'll just quicklink it.

I may be in the minority here, but in my opinion, the building would have been much more striking if the same facade was used instead of the see-through glass. I thought they had yet to put the cladding on until I saw someone mention the see-through glass, and it still looks incomplete to me. Perhaps in time it will grow on me. Nevertheless, it is a landmark for Philly and it really defines the skyline.

The architects did a great job in this building!
It will become one of my favourites in the USA.
