Yesterday was the groundbreaking for the much anticipated FMC Tower at Cira Centre South, a development project from Brandywine Realty. It was, not surprisingly, a who’s who of politicians, academics, architects, media folks, planners, builders, real estate bigwigs, developers, and probably even pigeons that are well-known in their community.
Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell said to the audience, “I don’t know who’s running the city, ’cause all the important people are here.”
That tidbit came from Hidden City, which offered thorough coverage of the event as well as extensive details about the 49-story, 730-foot building itself, which will be "the skyline’s starting point."

Pelli Clarke Pelli designed the tower with Philadelphia firm BLTa. With the first Cira Centre and Evo, designed by Erdy McHenry Architects, it will complete the "vertical neighborhood" of Cira Centre South.
