    4600 5th Avenue is by Skidmore Owings and Merrill. The roof structure is like giant bridge trusses. These cover both the building and the parking area.

    6000 Penn is gone, demolished last summer. It had replaced a skyscraper, one of a pair in the heart of East Liberty. The other, by Daniel Burnham, sat empty for 25 years before finally being renovated for high end apartments.
