I think with its proximity to other cities (New York), the relatively low land value (also compared to NY), and Center City's progressive, highly-dense zoning, this building is appropriate. Jersey City's skyline is booming because of its proximity to NY. I think it looks pretty nice too.

How much opposition there is to it being built though, is another story. Is there much?
oh, there's always opposition. some aging tenants, a neighborhood association and a state senator/full-time criminal are fighting it tooth & nail. why? because it will block their sunlight..

The recognition and image it would bring to Philadelphia should overshadow the lack of sunlight it would cause. The American Commerce Center is a great idea.
