Finally some truly exciting news for Philadelphia's skyline. Cira Centre South isn't dead. FMC Corp., headquartered at 1745 Market will be moving into 47 stories of new Brandywine real estate at 30th and Walnut.
The 650 foot tower will rival Center City's skyline and include 260 apartments and Penn offices.
For the time being, FMC seems to be going with the design for Pelli Clark Pelli and Bower Lewis Thrower's Cira Centre South.
However Campus Crest changed up the design at 30th and Chestnut with The Grove so it wouldn't be surprising to see FMC bring a new look to the table.
FMC is a chemical company specializing in everything from Lithium to detergent.
With numerous projects throughout University City scraping Philadelphia's sky, FMC is helping challenge City City's centricity.
