Some of the best views of the Philly skyline are from the Walt Whitman bridge.

I am convinced that Philly's skyline ranks 3rd after NYC and Miami on the east coast of the US. It is better than Boston's or Baltimore's ... not to put those cities down, I'm only talking about skylines here.

Oops! Sorry! I guess I was off topic.

The inimitable PHILLYSKYLINE.com has all kinds of great pics of this one.

Really looking good...I'm glad it's darker than the renders.

No updates in this thread since last October, but I want to make this announcement: The Residences at the Ritz Carlton in Philadelphia has bee completed as of June 2009.

There's something funny about this whole situation: The old One Meridian Plaza may have been used as an office building, but its exterior facade had the look of that of an apartment building. When the building stood vacant in the mid 90s, there should have been a proposal to dismantle the upper half of the tower, rebuild it the was it was before the fire, and convert it into apartments, which would have matched well with the hotel at Two Meridian Plaza.

Ooff, those shots give me aches in the knees. :\

I like the design & i think the color will mix well with 1 & 2 liberty place.

Philly is an interesting mix of colors.

In real life it does not look too dark ... it's a silvery sapphire blue ... not foreboding like Chicago's Hancock Tower (nearly black!) ... but it is blue though. BTW the condo apartments are rather expensive but nothing near Manhattan prices. I believe the smallest 1 bedrooms go for about a half-million, but the penthouses are about 3 - 4 million (I could be mistaken).

I went inside this building yesterday ... and I wish to re-confirm that it indeed has 48 floors. Not 44 floors.
