Rehabbing old homes is slow and expensive. any contractor will tell you it's faster and more efficient to build new than it is to retrofit- especially when you are trying to retrofit modern features into old structure. Saying it's "cheaper" as blanket statement is not accurate.

We are a unique city in the amount of rowhomes we have as well as the lack of detached housing. We're also unique in the lack of large apartment housing we have as well.

But yeah, this discussion should be in the low rise forum, not here.

last point- that chart doesn't separate rows and twins so some % of that attached housing chunk is constituted of semi-detached homes. There are many in Roxborough, NE Philly and MT Airy. Somehow Philadelphia didn't implode when they were built nor did folks suddenly think they were in chester county.

Certainly didn't stop CTC from being built- there's building reference before anyone else starts bitching.

Man, I so enjoy the ignore list. Thanks again for the tip. I still get to see the snoozer comments when they're quoted, however.

This building seems to be taking quite a long time, no?

There's a "User CP" link on your menu bar above. Click on that and look for "Edit Ignore List" in the left hand column.

You guys are so fragile. Unbelievable. What you consider hardship is laughable at times. Why do you even venture online if you expect everyone to think exactly as you do on every possible issue? I guess this is part of the safe space movement.

Don't take it personally. It's not necessarily about group think. Some people here are more of an urban planning type while some are more pure skyscraper nerds that just want to look at construction. Some don't want to see endless defenses of city decisions or long debates about urban planning where they have no direct relevance to the thread.

This is a thread about the Comcast Technology Center...

Any further talk about anything else will be deleted and appropriate infractions will be handed out.

How about some ground zero, 18th and Arch Streets shots... future front lobby. Btw, the lobby is absolutely massive, Titanic, but we already knew this...

See how small those workers look above the lobby working on the second Z (L) close to the Sterling building:

You can see what will eventually be how CTC meets Arch St - glass installed

The underneath part of building from the base (lobby) to the office section-- interesting... this building has layers you might say, overhangs the base:

It's a monster!

A few others while I'm here:

Does the blue tape get physically removed or does it just "wear away" over time? I wish it would just be removed so you could get a truer sense of how it will really look when the sun hits it from various angles.
