Client, Liberty Property Trust, shows a major commitment to the future of Philadelphia 

Robert A.M. Stern Architects & Kendall's design proposes two office towers framing a south-facing landscaped plaza on the boulevard. The taller building, rising approximately 975 feet, is set back from the boulevard, behind both the plaza and a 110-foot-high public winter garden, which serves both as a forecourt to the taller tower and as a light-flooded entrance to the Suburban Station concourse below. A unique feature of this building will be "sky atria" in the lower portion of the tower, a series of four three-story atrium spaces, one above the other. Above the limestone and granite base, the tower is clad in an aluminium-frame curtain wall with high performance low-E glass
