The Comcast Technology Center has yet to be topped off, but the skyscraper already has reshaped the growing Philadelphia skyline.
Upon its completion, the skyscraper will reach heights of 1,121 feet, surpassing the Comcast Center as the tallest building in the city.
Today, Philly's skyline is dominated by high rises outfitted in reflective glass. But at varying times, churches and government buildings have towered over the city.
Commercial Cafe, a national real estate blog, depicted the transformation of the Philadelphia skyline in a video released Monday.
The video documents the ascension of Center City's tallest 100 buildings, a group that includes everything from the North American Building built on South Broad Street in 1900 to the skyscrapers that controversially surpassed City Hall in the 1980s.
But it leaves out the Comcast Technology Center, which is not yet complete, and does not include the high-rise growth occurring across the Schuylkill River in University City.
