The bad - lots of "approved" and "proposed" projects never completed, including the American Commerce Tower, a beautiful plan for the Boyd, Dilworth House, and a nice tower on 5th and Walnut among others.
The ugly - Sugarhouse Hotel and Casino, LOL! Nice renderings but the "Hotel and Casino" ended up just being a low end slots barn.
Here's to the next 10,000 posts, may they be filled with lots of great news
I just did that too...
Very interesting to see the scale/scope of projects and how the 2013 projects are much more modest and feasible than the 2009 projects. Also the architectural trends are drastically different and the renderings are much flashier.
Also: somehow I missed this, and never saw a post about it
"Comcast has confirmed that it is looking at constructing a second tower near the Comcast Center to bring 1,000 employees in leased offices around town into its "urban campus." Of a new tower, Roberts said: "I have a concept in mind of what I think we need, and if we can figure it out, we will announce it at the proper time."" 11/11/13 - philly.com
