Crane on the right - at about 2/3s the height of Aramark tower, this should add some nice density to that part of the skyline.

I know some of this is phased. And I forget exactly in what order. But are the buildings fronting Chestnut Street part of Phase I or no? Thanks for reminding me.

Phase I only includes the buildings on Market, however future phases should get something built on Chestnut.

I think that is phase 3. The next phase will be to develop a tower at the corner of 12th and market on top of the retail podium.

a lot of steel beams are on the NE corner of the site. There is a huge beam on a flatbed on Market street. I didn't realize this was going to be a combo of steel and concrete construction. I suppose it has something to do with the floor heights on the lower floors.

The construction will be steel and plank. Similar to the construction of Museum Tower II.
