Brandywine should covertly use its connections to try to get the planning commission to demand a (taller) north-south orientation of the tower to preserve views in both directions. Between its Cira complex and its new acquisition at 24th and Market, Brandywine has interest in preserving those views, I would think. Why not?

While I dislike that aspect a lot, I don't think it will totally kill the view. Especially from atop Cira Green. However, that picture shows how friggin ugly 2400 Chestnut is - that's the template for this building and the city and neighbors would be crazy to accept another 2400 Chestnut.
