Well, I checked too, but nothing to see here folks! However, I think something major is coming that we may not talked about or speculated on. Think around 800 feet is my guess or taller. They need a major trophy building as a grand statement to Schuylkill Yards. Besides, as we know, we are getting near the end of the 10 year tax abatement bonanza, so they have to get 'er done now!.........Or maybe I am being an over-excited YIMBY!

“ Brandywine has also completed the construction design documents and is seeking construction permitting for one new tower on JFK Boulevard, and it has completed design development documents for another. Construction is expected to begin this fall on the 500,000-square-foot West tower, which will consist of mainly residential units with office and retail space on the lower floors. The 750,000-square-foot East tower, which will consist of a mix of large corporate offices, retail space on the ground floor and, possibly, laboratories, will be constructed after the completion of the West tower, pending the closing of a large corporate tenant. Brandywine is planning for and is in the early design stage for a new stand-alone research lab building, with this project likely preceding the start of the East tower. The West tower will take approximately 30 months to complete.”

The lab building is the one going next to the supposed supertall correct?

Anybody have info on this unveiling? Why post about something coming soon and then just be radio silent on for two weeks. Pretty annoying.

I wonder when we'll get a 1000' in that area; the abatement is coming to an end soon and there needs to be a catalyst; something that says this is the spot to build and do business; something that moves the area from project stage to interest and reality. I wonder if there is interest enough to generation such a project?

If i was in control of a company that was considering a move to Schuylkill Yards I don't think a 1000 foot tower means anything to me.

1000 feet moves the needle on this board, but in the real world I'd assume that a handful of smaller buildings filled with tenants would do more to convince people this was a good location to move to.

The 1,000 footer was always viewed as one of the final buildings they would build and I doubt that would change if it's ever built.

The 10 year tax abatement is for residential buildings. And it will be along time before a 1000' apartment or condo tower is built here in Philly. Plus it might be a long time before then is a need for a 1000' tower of any sorts, unless Comcast changes directions.
