A quite brutal building, but too bad for that area

Viewing it from the Comcast Center, I'm happy to see this tower. It fills a gap and while it doesn't stick out like a Cira Center, it also doesn't stick out as something ugly. It is unique, it shows design diversity and is a great fit for where it is. Nothing wrong with this building. I'm glad to have it in Philly.

Not the first time we've seen this type of pattern used for skinny windows. Reminds me of the (really) old punched computer cards.

Ha, your right, it does. One of the first punch card computers ever made for general-purpose was housed within walking distance from here, the ENIAC. Perhaps this was the developers nod to its contributions to modern day.

^^Lovin' UCity's ever growing skyline. That first shot is superb. Whoever thought University City would have this level of highrise density?... and there's only more to come!

Turned out better than expected. It's really not bad. Especially considering this is student housing built using paneling as the primary exterior skin. The builder/architect managed to arrange the panels in a way that makes this a relatively decent looking building.
