To be honest, I don't think I should resize it because I like to keep the original size and quality. And yes you can, just credit

They are the tallest structures in the region and it's amazing how they can be seen for miles......

No offense, but at that resolution it is blurry and has a ton of noise. It's also hard to appreciate when one cannot see the entire thing at once, which is a shame because the photo itself is great. I'd try 1/3 size.

I cannot tell from the photos & haven’t been in the city lately to look directly at them but I’m wondering if they’ve begun the process of adding the facade to those little sections that pop out of the center of the west face? From some of the photos the ones on the bottom appear different but the photos aren’t close enough for me to see.

They are. They have about 5 floors on the bottom added already. This will really change the way the west side looks when complete. They look great.

Sorta off topic, but is there any site where you can see the view of the city through tye years from the top of the art museum steps? Like how it looks in that scene from Rocky 1 to how it looks now? I've searched high and low but haven't been able to find anything like that. It would be great to see the skyline evolve over the years from roughly the same vantage point, and that's one of the more iconic ones.

I've always thought this building was too bulky but as it finishes up it's starting to grow on me. At least from the NW angles

Thanks. I read the Google map incorrectly looking for a point of reference.

I wasn't sure about this one. But now, seeing the cladding go up on the lantern/mast, I like it. It shows what a difference the "enclosure" makes to that mast. Too bad the Freedom Tower spire couldn't get its original cladding, but that's all water under the bridge now...

Your best option would be www.google.com/images

Yeah, like the other guy said, 76 ... Schuylkill Expressway (... or sure-kill expressway). In the pic, the view is southeast. I'm only commenting because in tandem with the other post asking for historical views from the museum, I'm thinking how much this view has changed and NOT changed since I took this route daily on my commute in the early 90s. East of 76, in this view the only major buildings that are different are the comcast buildings and the murano. My favorite building in this view back then was always what used to be the Bell Atlantic building. Underrated. When I saw the plans for CITC, I was on the fence. Great to add height but felt a little awkward. Think I'm changing my mind. From this angle especially, this building is impressive.

Hard to tell, but looks like main parts of the lower-lantern are transparent, and the thin horizontal separators are opaque? Since the top part appears to be opaque, and will obviously be lit, I'm guessing that the thin opaque parts will also be lit and it will transition (hopefully subtly but maybe abruptly) to the upper lantern? That could look really cool. Some of the renders on p1 appear to show this, but there's one that actually seems to show the opposite (that the transparent parts are illuminated and blend in with the top part.)
