Quite possible that a merger will affect their plans. They will for sure re evaluate their locations.

I'm glad there's another building being built in Philadelphia. The last time I went there, I found the skyline pretty decent.

Comcast is only buying the Time Warner cable assets which includes cable TV systems throughout the US. Time Warner's media and other assets will continue to exist on their own in New York. As the owner of TWC, Related could try to tempt Comcast into a lease but since Comcast also owns 30 Rockefeller Center, they wouldn't need space at TWC.

A new "Innovation and Technology Center", huh? Good way for Comcast to expand its presence in Philly. But why add a hotel element to this building?

To load up the rooms with Xfinity features and sell Comcast technology to business travelers.

I'll check the site every few days and report any news. Meanwhile I was near there today and I saw a lot of construction activity at the new Mormon temple site.

Love the tower, hate the company.

Philly has always had a great skyline despite its relatively small size and this will make it even better.
