I'm not disagreeing but remember a 650ft luxury apartment tower is proposed for Rittenhouse square right behind the laurel, and another 500ft tower is proposed next door to that one, plus 542ft tower at broad on Lombard, I'd say a supertall is a ways off but 700 or 800ft isn't to far away

Got to be honest, at this point most of them would be mixed use of residential anyway. The super talk is very easily happen. It just needs a mixture of lab space, residential hotel space and the like. Probably what most hours will be residential hotel and or lab /life sciences space

Yes and no, the cap over the railyards was always a ways away. If I recall correctly, the cap wasn't even supposed to start construction until around 2030, Amtrak is waiting until school yards finishes or mostly finishes to start. They might build some stuff closer to the station. Maybe stuff that requires like a small cap but they can't see them doing anything yet
