Are you just asking about the spots where the tower crane supports were connected to the buildings framework, or are you saying the glass is generally screwy in spots?

They might be waiting for warm weather so as to not freeze out the buildings tenants while putting in the last panels. Or maybe they need to do the work from a hanging scaffolding system, which might not be installed yet.

The miss matched panels are getting old. I remember Evo had similar missing panels.

Finally gonna start posting pics. Here's a shot I took while biking on the(extremely crowded) Schuylkill River Trail today. I still can't get over how much of a gem this building is. I swear it's going to cause accidents on the 76 with commuters staring at its beauty.

Yes. The off-color pieces are from the construction cranes and elevators, and a few broken pieces. They will be replaced.

Seems pretty standard...groundbreaking and digging for the current incarnation being built began in May 2014.

Really? I swear it was later than that... like 2015... maybe I'm just going insane.

I feel that as well. I know that construction started that long ago, and that the "Cira Center South" was a proposal in multiple incarnations before it finally got built as the FMC Tower, but I never really paid attention to this building until it was well at the 4/500 foot mark. Maybe it's because it's so far away from any of the other buildings of a similar height. I don't know.

I do love that picture with the cloudy gray sky and the Art Museum in the background.
