This building will rise 312 feet now at 26 floors. Temple is in dire need of highrise buildings because they can not really expand out anymore. This building will add I believe 1200 beds to the campus. There is only two buildings in Center City rising lower then I would like. 2017 Chestnut Street which will only be 151 feet at 12 floors but it will replace a low rise soooo... The other is 1900 arch which will only be 167 feet. But we can chalk that one up to the NIMBYS in the Kennedy House for it being that short. The new Jefferson Tower was only 12 floors, but they were building to suit their needs, not to show off.
The others are pretty tall.
2116 Chestnut St- possibly over 400ft
Family Court Building- now 265 feet
Penn Medicine Tower- 260 feet
Chinatown Tower- 265 feet
Those are all decent heights, and the two Drexel Towers will both probably come out over 200 feet now. The Chestnut St one is 19 floors and the new Lebow building will only be (12?) floors, but it will have some pretty high ceilings, some reaching almost 20 ft.
