    U.S. cities are getting taller this year, thanks to a handful of new construction projects across the country.

    The recession put dozens of major commercial and residential projects on hold, but with the economy coming back to life developers are eager to jump back on the building bandwagon.

    In cities from coast to coast, skyline-altering projects will start growing this year. Philadelphia and San Francisco are preparing to build their tallest towers yet, while sprawling acres of corporate campuses will significantly change neighborhoods around Seattle and Phoenix. Even cities that haven't seen major downtown development in years will see their skylines change.
