The FMC Tower on the Schuylkill River in University City has officially been branded, showing that construction is quickly wrapping up at the 49-story tower.
The red letters were first installed on the north-facing side of the Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed tower about one week ago. The same sign adorned the south facade shortly after.
The 730-foot-tower is home to FMC’s new headquarters as well as AKA University City residences.
FMC Tower's big claim to fame is that it will be the first vertical neighborhood in Philadelphia. Tenants of the AKA University City residences will have access to a club level 400 feet above ground that will include a pool, green space with fire pits, a movie theater, a 3D golf simulator, and an indoor-outdoor restaurant managed by the crew from a NYC-based Michellin-rated restaurant Rebelle.
In the meantime, you can get a sneak peek of the interiors of the glossy tower in this video, where local firm BLT Architects talks about the construction progress.
