Yep Bank of America, Atlanta will be taller at 312m but I guess when they say tallest between NY & Chicago they're talking about when you actually travel between the two cities - via Atlanta would be quite a detour. Current tallest between NY & Chicago is Key Tower, Cleveland (289m). Unless you went via Toronto....First Canadian Place would pip Comcast by a metre (298m).

There are a ton of renderings at the top of the SSP Comcast Center thread here. Several of us are following progress.

It will be the 12th tallest in the US when it's completed.

I found this rendering on SSP and the guys told this was the new design,but it looks dated in comparison with the one posted there.What is the real design then?

That is an old design. The project was originally proposed in 2001 at (I think) 746 ft tall. It went through a shitload of design and height changes, and the rednering you post up above is the 962 ft tall rendering proposed right before the silver 975 ft tall buuilding that is currently under construction. I'm sure there are others who could give a more detailed description of the projects shaky past but also the rendering of the building is from back when it was called One Pennsylvania Plaza. They changed the name to COmcast Center (since Comcast will be the major tenant) on January 3rd, 2005 when the newest rendering was released and the project was officially approved.

Looks awesome in the renders - perfect form and positioning on the skyline.

I will watch this one grow with great interest.

Great stuff
