This seems to be going up rather quick. This will make the view looking down Chestnut Street from the west look very interesting.

Mid-August this one will be visible from a long ways out. Here's a pic from this morning:

Love all the activity going on this neighborhood-- this is obviously the largest project around here, but there's more coming:

-43rd and Chestnut former church site
-Yet-to-be announced small development coming to 43rd and Ludlow
-two 5-6 story apartment buildings filling gaps on the 4000 block of Ludlow St
-42nd and Ludlow apartment building under construction
-Orens Brothers' 44th and Ludlow building starting soon
-two apartment buildings about to begin side-by-side by the same developer on the 4300 block of Market
-University Place 3.0 about to begin with future projects in process
-numerous UCity Square projects in motion
-Tangen Hall at 40th and Sansom under construction
-new Penn dorm on 3900 block of Walnut under construction
-numerous underutilized properties, big and small, on Chestnut Street, Market Street, and Lancaster Ave corridors trading soon.
-Retail corridor on 0000 block of S 40th Street about to get at least 6 new retail tenants, 4 paying big rents
-Penn Medicine soon to announce plans for Elwyn Institute site (long term plan, Elwyn's new building in Camden is 2 years out)

I credit this area being correctly mapped for zoning so appropriate projects are by-right.

This building will start growing even faster now. They just started achieving a 3-day pour cycle. So we will see an added floor every 3-4 days from here until we get to the roof.

Any earthcam for this?

From Tuesday, July 30th. Glass going in on the West side of the building

^Wow, thanks for posting.
12-13 floors now?? This thing shot up fast. I was out there mid-June and it was 4 floors high.

Glass already...
Hunter Roberts killing it between this and the Laurel.

It's a friggin weed. I live in the area and I haven't even noticed it. OTOH I have noticed that both of Penn's projects on 40th are going up.

This thing is shooting up FAST. It’s now clearly visible from Lancaster Walk on Drexel’s campus.
