PHILLY’S ON THE MAP

As noted in the link to my boss’ article from last week’s Philadelphia Inquirer, City Mayors and PriceWaterhouseCoopers estimate that the Philadelphia region is the 9th largest metropolitan area – in the world. And that in 2020, it’ll advance one spot to 8th.

Flipping through the latest, “Best of 2008” issue of Mid-Atlantic Construction, which covers DC, Maryland, Virginia, the eastern half of Pennsylvania, and Delaware, I noticed that the Comcast Center garnered “Overall Project of the Year.” (The fact that we beat out the Newseum and the Pentagon Memorial tells you how impressive of an honor this was.) The Comcast Center was also featured in a two-page ad by Hill International – another Philadelphia-based company – with nine other skyscrapers: 8 in the Middle East and 1 in Poland.

In other words, by many measures, Philly’s on the map.
