What's super crazy is all of the buildings that have been built or started construction since that aerial picture was taken:

The Granary
Philadelphia Family Court Building
Dalian on the Park
Museum Towers II
Mormon Temple
1601 Vine
1900 Arch
The Sansom
AQ Rittenhouse
1919 Market
2040 Market
2116 Chestnut
Evo at Cira Centre South
FMC Tower at Cira Centre South
Drexle University LeBow College of Business
Chestnut Square
Lancaster Square
Penn New College House at Hill Square
The Study Hotel at University City

^^Every single one of those buildings would be viewable in this picture. That coupled with the new Comcast Tower and all this other construction is truly amazing.

On the second pic in the bottom right there is an open area. What they were building there has been finished, I don't know why its never on there in 3-D along with the rest of the towers.

Interesting to see the differences in the mat pours between an East Coast and West Coast tower. Check out this video on Salesforce Tower in San Francisco. What a difference a fault line makes.

Yeah, you can see the cross-bracing in the pit and the size 8 rebar is humongous. This one-thousand footer won't topple even when shook be a high-magnitude earthquake. Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome! It's #18 rebar. Almost the diameter of a soda can. The caissons go down 300 feet to bedrock and the mat is 14 feet thick.

Definitely crazy! Salesforce actually started excavation before Comcast and yet Comcast is 500 feet up now and Salesforce isn't even at street level yet. It's crazy the amount of work that foundations require over there. We'd be losing our minds in Philadelphia if it took that long to get out of the ground.
