It's been quite awhile since the last photo update. It's looking pretty good:



The garage portion on the back is moving pretty quick too. Prefab gets it done. I'm getting anxious to see how the small plaza will look in the front. Just to throw it in, but we WSFS employees will get a walkthrough of our floors when they enclose it (first week of August?). The elevators were being installed last week, and the HVAC should be done soon.

WSFS has a really spectacular facade.

It really has brought a needed presence on 95 going south through town.

However, the view from the back is a little disconcerting, but it does fill in the skyline from, say, 4th street going down into town.

I like the fact that it is glass, but not necessarily too mirrorlike. It seems to reflect light, but necessarily it's surroundings as images off the glass. Hard to explain.

That's looking really nice!! Delaware is such a cute little state....It's family oriented and close to lots of big cities, yet its got some high rise activity of its own just humming along... Very cool!

Now all we need to make Delaware Avenue look very dense is to build something on that parking lot in the foreground of all of these pictures.

And from I-95 northbound, the Sheraton looks way to small now. I wouldn't mind blowing it up and building somehing bigger there, then building the hotel one or two blocks south to give the skyline some depth from I-95 north.

Nice shot Matt. I've been meaning to take a another couple shots now that it's fully enclosed and the construction elevator is down. They've been working double shifts to get the Morris James space fit out on the top two floors; they'll be moving in November now I believe. The work on the post office is starting to wrap up too.

Anyone else think that that back section of the building, that faces northbound I-95, doesn't look so great with all of that gray facade?

^Did you prefer the white? I don't think it looks any worse or better then the white cinderblock. That grey paneling seems to be BPG's trademark.

The rest of the building is really starting to flesh out now.

I think both white and gray are bad. I would've liked windows the whole way across, like the front of the building.

I think the gray appears a little sloppy, as if they have not finished the edging.

However, we do already have a uniform blue glass building, and I think the building looks good.

Also, at night, the middle of the building breaks it up, making the building appear as if it is two building, which makes for a dynamic addition to the skyline.

The building is being used now, and they are working on the laza out front, along with the post office.

Morris James moved into their space after Thanksgiving. There were crews out working at 10PM the Sunday before their move. I don't know how late they worked, but it was definately a last minute scramble.

I think the 501 looks frickin' badass on the front. Oh, so classy.

Thumbs Up on the completion of the building. It was good.
