The American Commerce Center in Philadelphia would be so cool if it were built. It would bring long do recongnition to the City of Brotherly Love.

anyway, those are some of the taller ones, say at least 700 feet. Spire, Waterview, Waldorf, and Trump are all well over 1,000. Pictures are from their related official pages at Skyscrapercity

Aqua may be one of my favorite glass skyscrapers.
It would also be amazing to see something that size in Phila., but they could have solved that decades ago by putting Franklin on a 2000' pole.
