Here's my quick attempt; hard to gauge scale from that angle, though. The height might be conservative.

My wife and I were just talking about how, the "modern skyline shots" will more likely come from the West Philly/ University City side. They will include Cira, FMC and Evo.


And now for something completely different: Really cool picture on this website of the Philadelphia skyline with the Murano and Comcast Center both under construction, and Cira is very new.

Plus it's a cool article overall.

This looks awesome! I really hope UCity isn't shy when it comes to building tall.

Korean company to pitch platform screen doors to Septa. This could be a total home run if things fall into place. What do you guys think?
