Philadelphia YIMBY Observes Decorative Lighting at One Liberty Place in Center City
As the nighttime Philadelphia skyline is becoming brighter with new projects featuring decorative lighting, One Liberty Place has also made its mark on the dark night sky. Located at 1650 Market Street in Center City, the skyscraper was constructed 1987 and rises to a height of 945 feet and 61 floors. The tower was designed by Helmut Jahn of Murphy/Jahn and developed by Willard Rouse of Rouse and Associates. The structural design was crafted by Thornton Tomasetti and the tower was constructed by LF Driscoll between 1985 and 1987, with The Lighting Practice as the new contractor for the lights. In this feature, Philadelphia takes an extended look at the improved lighting on the crown of the trophy tower.
