Believe it or not, in 1996 I was working on the rails fixing them up to get ready for reuse. 23 years later, still nothing. So don’t hold your breath.

It’s neither the photographer, nor the equipment. It’s the subject.

I think a recent inky article said the 12-story high hotel is 160 ft tall. Slated to open at the end of 2020. Link to new interior renders of the casino and hotel room:

https://www.bizjournals.com/philadel...-district.html

Article behind paywall, so I didn't get the details of the future expansion. Any one able to read it and summarize it or quote the details. Thanks.

Oh, Cordish Companies' twitter account has some pics from the topping off event.
