Wow. The scale/impact of this building is simply enormous!
I hope you enjoyed your trip, I’d love to take a trip down to Philly when I next go to NY, how long would you say I’d need in such a city?
Philadelphia has an enormous amount of history. A long weekend would probably suffice – one day for historical things, one day for development/skyscrapers, and another for the other tourist attractions (many museums, etc).
Philly is quite a dense city as well. It has that gritty vibe with its prewars, and layout.

I hope the city gains more people. The thing is, the core is getting much bigger and denser, as this shot was 6 days ago, but the population is not matching it. I presume an influx of lower wealth towards the burbs. Lots of mid rise construction occurring. While its not a high rise magnet in terms of a boom, theres quite a nice amount of infill occuring all over.
Nice picture, Thomas!
Nice view and what a nice skyline that the city presents!
One of the best photos of Philadelphia that I’ve seen! It also reminds us that the core/downtown areas of American cities are well ahead of the game in terms of density, architectural styles and long-term planning. We just need more people to move back in from the suburbs!
Good to see some action going on in another major city
Nice shot, Thomas!
From that angle, it has a slight resemblance to 175 Greenwich.
Nice. It’s getting crowded!
Slowly, but the future is coming fast as this tower grows!
