Wow, they've made substantial progress since I was there in late October.
I like Stern's Comcast tower, but wish it was built somewhere other than Philadelphia. 1 Liberty Plaza was an almost perfect spire and deserved to reign over the city, whereas Comcast kind of ruins that effect with its flat top.
Everyone: Every time I visit Philadelphia I notice the Comcast Tower-I am right now just in the next block N of the Comcast Tower's location working at the National Railway Historical Society here in Center City Philadelphia. That building may dominate the City today the way the Liberty Towers dominated things in the late 80s/early 90s. I sort of take it for granted as it is literally outside our doors. When I look at the William Penn statue atop Philadelphia's City Hall - 555 feet tall I believe - I see how much things have changed since taller buildings have been constructed in the past 20 or so years. But-interestingly-the WP statue faces NE-most if not all of the new construction has taken place S or W of City Hall-therefore not blocking his "view" so to speak.
