This is easier said than done for determining the height of a building, but there are some barriers that have been known to prevent this height.'

1. Zoning laws for either the area, city, or even country.
2. The company that is the main tenant for the project calls most of the shots.

The sixth floor is complete and the slipforms were raised today. An industrious forumer at SSP learned that steel construction on site is scheduled to begin next month.

Just wondering, how long did #1 Liberty Place take to rise?

It's not often Philadelphia gets a tall tower.

No it is not often that Philly builds tall towers. But when they do build, they build it right, which is why I think Philly has one of the most aesthetically pleasing skylines in the U.S.

I agree. Philly has a sweet skyline, and one part of me is gonna miss seeing One Liberty Place as the tallest point from far far away. All this time, it told me homes near.

Well, we've definitely come a long way since Rocky.



see, nothing taller than City Hall!
