If the completed building is as visible as the crane, and it should be, then it will have quite a place in the western sky if not the skyline. I hope it turns out to be a winner, not just another box.
Wow, second tower crane erected in University City this weekend (first is at Penn's new Perelman Center for Political Science and Economics at 36th and Walnut).

We've got steel!







Also, the title should be changed. This tower is called "Vue32," not "View32."

I'm surprised that this will be a steel structure and not cement.
