If you overlay two maps (Manhattan and Philadelphia) together, you will see that the navy yard represents downtown Manhattan, while Center City represents Midtown.

Yes, it is possible to have soaring skyscrapers stretching from the navy yard to Center City.
If it did happen, you would see Philadelphia actually become Manhattan.

So yes, this is a possibility.
It's been mentioned that the flight path to the airport sadly precludes too much height at the Navy Yard.
