About time. The type of vibe this property will provide is exactly what this city needs more of, let alone on that portion of Broad. Excited for this and the W. The Logan seems to have come out well too, with The Assembly Rooftop being officially open! Not an optimal weekend to check that out, however.

I want this building to start BIG TIME! But it doesn't start until September 2016? What the heck?

From above: ".....will be the tallest tower in Pennsylvania built for residential use. "

That is a very precise use of words. Liberty Two has much higher redisential units, but it wasn't built as residential.

That's marketing right there. The SLS has high units, but Liberty Two still has ultra-fancy condos that are 150'-200' higher than this building.

I still really like it, either way.

I'd say it doesn't matter (and it probably doesn't) but a fairly minor decrease in the renders for 1911 Walnut did seem to change the aesthetic more than you'd expect. But just build this damn thing. Glad it is supposed to start September.

I'd like to believe that info means something but some of the dates/statuses in that CCD report were not accurate. They had buildings that are under construction marked as "proposed" and stuff that hadn't started (like the hotel on Broad st.) marked as under construction.

The incredible shrinking tower. By the time September rolls around, the new height will be zero feet. LOL

I don't think the height decrease is too big of a deal but I am a little disappointed that this won't be taller than City Hall anymore. Was hoping that this one would eclipse Billy Penn's hat.

Weird how it went down 44 feet but only 2 stories. Maybe the design changed.

I figured since I was walking by that I should share a couple pics of the nicely clean hole in the ground that may one day hold up the SLS.

It will be used as a christmas tree lot for topping out of buildings for when they need a ceremony tree.

when is Dranoff going to say anything else about this project? I'm amazed that there has been so little comment and so little media interest in what was supposed to be a major development project. I hope someone in the media digs into this a bit to figure out why there has been silence on this for so long.

Since this project was first publically proposed how many other projects have been annouced and have started or at least are still moving forward?

probably a half dozen or more I'd guess. There are some other prominent projects that stalled, but none went so far as to demolish a building and clear the site before stalling. Th 701 market project has seemingly disappeared before it ever got off the ground. And of course the Chinatown tower project has been false start after false start.
