It doesn’t take much more than a short walk around the city to see that Philly is on the rise—literally. At Curbed Philly’s last count, 27 high-rises were under construction, and many more are in the pipeline.
But after a year of navigating construction sites and peering up toward soaring construction cranes, we’ll all be able to breath a sigh of relief when at least 10 of the new high-rises finally finish construction in 2018. In fact, 8 million square feet of construction is expected to deliver next year, including Philly’s first supertall tower, the 60-story Comcast Technology Center.
