Absolutely beautiful photos! Philly needs to turn the top floor of One Liberty into a penthouse. That'd be sweet as hell! Well done!

Hmm... I respectfully disagree. That floor screams observation deck!

I agree. I wonder if it is for rent. I think you could cover rent making it an observation deck...

This is a skyline thread done right. Thanks for these beautiful shots, the ones of Philly in particular were stunning.

Something about One Liberty that I didn't catch before. Is that under construction or is it a mechanical floor? For something that was completed 25 years ago it looks like it's unfinished' much of the plumbing, HVAC, electrical equipment, etc is exposed...
