This has been approved by the Planning Commission. It looks like the taller tower is 42 floors. The two smaller towers are 21 floors.

Minnesota-based NP International will construct a 42-story skyscraper and a 21-story high-rise in Logan Square on a parcel bounded by the Schuylkill Riverfront, Cherry and 23rd streets, and JFK Boulevard, according to a presentation given to the Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC) Tuesday.

The PCPC approved two bills that rezone the property to accommodate the developer's desired building height and allow retail space above the ground-floor.

The taller of the two towers will be built on a piece of land sandwiched between the Amtrak-owned bridge that runs east out of 30th Street Station and JFK Boulevard, while the smaller high-rise, a third building and a public plaza will rise from the flood-prone parking lot at 23rd and Cherry streets, the presentation showed.

The project, which includes residential, commercial and hospitality components, will add a pedestrian staircase and handicapped-accessible ramp from JFK Boulevard, which hovers about the Schuylkill, to the ground below at 23rd and Cuthbert streets – an area located beneath an overpass that holds several lines of train tracks.
