I think this the best 'scraper built (till now) in the 2008.

BTW, one of the most beautiful skyscraper of the world. IMHO.

From The Philadelphia Daily News 6/11 AMAZING!!!!!



A scene that reminds one of Ben Franklin's brave experiment - lightening bolts over Center City bring relief from the early heat wave on Tuesday June 10, 2008 - Philadelphia.

Indeed, one of the most beautiful skyscrapers built during this decade. Suits the skyline extremely well!

I love the lines on this building. They draw your eye up. This is a great example of iconic minimalism. . . even better than the Index in Dubai.

It refreshes my mind just looking at this tower. Reminds me little bit of Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco though...

I could see that. Great skyline. Strange angle this shows the sort end of the skyline. Philadelphia's skyline spans river to river this from the Schuylkill.

Its amazing how good this beauty fits in the skyline of this city. But just fitting is not enough, the building crowns the skyline would fit better
