That's actually the United Engineers Building/United Plaza/Duane Morris Building. Beneficial is just outside of this pic to the left. But again similar facade with a quick glance.

Now THIS is an angle from which I would agree that this building looks like it's always been there.

MSC has a brochure for the remaining 2 retail spaces available at the Harper with a great rendering of the Sansom St frontage:

The last picture in the brochure shows a 'Future Site Development' Lot on 22nd and Market...is that something new in the works?? I remember there were plans at that area at one point but they fell through.

Nice. This makes it look like the base material is stone, though. And that's not what the cladding going up looks like. What is Retail B, which is indicated to be "At Lease"? I don't think that tenant has been announced??

I talked to Pearl yesterday. We're listing our condo in April and, I guess, going to rent for a year or whatever until some of the interminably slow new construction we're looking at is complete. The Harper is one of the top candidates. I don't think the building will be completely finished then, but Karen Pearlstein says the top floors will be ready for occupancy on June 1. She says "We open 6/1 from the top down."

I guess it is still a seller's market. Probably not as much as it was last year, but I hope we can move it quickly. Will do re view pictures if I end up at the Harper. Should be good views, I'd think. Facing Market, Comcast etc... in one direction and the Square and the Laurel rising in the other direction. Not sure what the specific units we'd want have .

Will someone please tell Bryce Harper that we've named a building for him.

^Amen.

By the way, regarding Bryce Harper -- he is a devout Mormon, as I guess most/all Mormons are. I noticed on his IG page that he has been to the new Mormon Temple here and seemed to love it -- I guess that might be one factor in deciding to come to Philly-- having a beautiful, brand new place of worship, and well-attended flock, etc. Just an observation. (I'm not at all religious, but good for him). See Harper's post 8/2016:

Having a temple to go to for your faith certainly doesn't hurt, but that amount of obscene money that the organization spent sure as heck helped acquire him.

Philly needed to step up big time and they sure did!

Is that truss going to look like that at the end of the day? Having now fireproofed it, I hope they paint it black to match the adjacent entry as in their renders... https://pearl-apartments.com/properties/the-harper/

I don't think they have to fireproof that truss, since it's no longer a functional structural element. If they had, the fireproofing material would have given it a very rough, crude texture, not at all eye-pleasing. I saw that they painted it a while back and I believe that gray color is the final product.

Still wondering when they're going to complete the marquee above the Chestnut St restaurant entrance. They did a wonderful job with the etched Art Deco glass* above, but the cartoonish, flat 3D-ish painted depiction of neon on the marquee has got to go. Then again the restaurant is running a bit late as well, to have opened Fall 2018.
