News broke yesterday that the long-anticipated third and final tower of the Cira Centre South complex is officially on the way. The new FMC Tower will top out at 650 feet (25 feet taller than the G. Fred DiBona Jr. Building at 19th & Market), a very nice addition to the rapidly developing western part of the skyline. Since we're all hungry for a glimpse of the new skyline, Curbed put together all the project renderings we could find, including originals from 2007.
The building's design has been modified a few times, with the current plan closely resembling the original renderings that were released in 2007. The blocky design from 2011 is thankfully nowhere to be seen.
