The city had a momentary grasp on what works in the late 80's early 90's height boom but they have lost their way since. These are projects that belong in Conshohocken or Norristown not Center City.
Heck - why not go for 200 floors (minimum)! Any moron can see the Philly market here is strong enough to absorb the units. Unbelievable.
