Here's hoping! We have two more projected for the 30th Street area, but we're not expecting to see them built any time soon.

Porte Cochere is what that is called. This is likey architecture related to the terraces on that level. I'm sure they need to be strong steel because of winds.

More progress on the assembly of the cooling tower. Looks very substantial for the added height to the building.

Could I suggest something?

It's been ages since there's been an official meetup of Philly forumers (a lot of you youngsters weren't around during the heady early 2000s).

Who would be amenable to having one to celebrate the topping off of our city's first supertall?

I've sent a couple of emails to NBC10 about the web cam being down and haven't gotten a response in return...so much for service. Thanks to all those posting daily pics though!

According to post #5926 on page 297 of this thread, the next set of steel was coming up beginning on June 30th, which, if I recall correctly, we established will mean that this building not only passes the first Comcast Center, but also becomes the first supertall in Philadelphia.

Holy I beams , Bat Man .
That's not a bad idea . I remember when you were monitor and Brad Maule was shooting construction pictures of the Comcast tower .
Unfortunately for me , I'm old enough to remember when the Rouse towers were nothing more than a sketch up in the Inky and Blue
Cross twin towers were a passing thought .

I enjoyed reading your posts and looked forward to your input about almost everything . It would be great to break some " Tweenies "
away from their cell phones long enough to avoid being struck down by progress and maybe discover the foundation of skyscrapers in
Philly .

But alas , ere , I am too old and weak to mount my once mighty steed to provoke the rebuttal of those much too set in their own dim light .

So forgive my absents but please bring your years of knowledge to the forefront and tell them well .......

Driving down the Schuylkill today, I noticed they finally removed all of the blue seran wrap stuff that was covering the bracing. It looks really nice when the Sun hits it at the right angle.

I'm sure there is some place that can accommodate everyone. The lower limit would be if you have to ask your parent's permission to meet up with a bunch of people you don't know, in the big city.

Kids, <i>always get your parents' permission</i> but we've had high schoolers at previous meets.

We can tailor the event for all ages - a walk and lunch for everybody and then a later event for the 21+ crowd.
