Ice will do a mighty fine job. The test facade looks really good, very glass like.

Ive benn watching this discussion about the stinky urinals a long time now and I have to ask you :

Do you really think a they would build urinals that smell bad all the time ??

NO



Here in Germany many restaurants (even lots of Mc Donalds and Burger Kings too)
have this kind of waterless urinals, called "urimat"

And I can tell you, they are not stinky !!! They are much better and cleaner than any other urinals.
And the best, they are without chemical stuff and without water, so they are very good for the environment.

I think its been mentioned already, but the problem with the waterless urinals the builder wanted installed in the building is not whether they stink or not, but it means less plumbing and thus less work for the plumbers union.

This is probably just because it's still in construction and it just looks that way, but does the Comcast Center look really skinny width wise to anyone else? Is it supposed to be like that?

Comcast Center is wider along the north and south than along the east and west. The building shares its side of the block with Arch Street Presbyterian Church (which is getting a makeover courtesy of the developers) and so had to be trimmed down a bit. If the church wasn't there the building may have been shorter.

Also, glass delivery has began Wednesday morning and installation will begin this weekend.

It's already passed the BA tower I believe, at 750' (227m) It's now the 4th tallest in Philly! Next is Mellon Bank at 795' (242m) Liberty place 2 at 845' (258m) and One Liberty at 960' (290m)


Soon enough...


By 5 years Philly will have at least 15 buildings over 150m!
