I figured this deserved a thread as well. This is not in Center City (Philadelphia's Central Business District), but it is still considered a high rise. Plans call for a 26 floor high rise at 312 feet, a 3 story retail complex branching off of the tower and an 8 story residential complex with a courtyard in the middle and an underground parking garage. This is currently under construction on the corner of Broad St. and Cecil B. Moore ave. on the Campus of Temple University in Lower North Philadelphia. The foundations are complete and concrete has begun to pour for it's underground parking garage.
