It's not three levels underground, it's directly underground (unless 30 feet consitutes three levels). There will be a headhouse in the plaza on JFK Boulevard that will lead down about 30 feet to Suburban Station where people can access trains.

The plot of the building itself sits directly over Suburban Station's concourse and then the tracks themselves.

This is great for Philadelphia
I already loved the skyline of this city, and it will be so nice when the tower will be completed!

Goooo Philadelphia!

Comcast Tower will have a new entrance to Suburban Station commuter rail station via a dramatic 120' high glass enclosed winter garden which is a projection of the lobby on the south side of the building. The trains will be 2 levels below grade or the 2 levels below the lobby level.

Wooow, great to here there's finally another tall improvement to Phila's skyline. It is already quite a nice city, strange enough I haven''t been there yet. And I drove almost through it a couple of times

It's still standing on my "visiting" list

Looks like the beast will soon rise from the ground level! Just a couple of underground floors!

This will definitely be a great building to watch rise. Can't wait to see it finished.

Good news for Philly. Too bad it's not a 1000 footer!

One thing guys...
BofA in Atlanta is 312 meters to the top of the spire. Im quite certain that the top floor in that building is still VERY well below the (250 meters) 950ft mark (in fact it could be in the high 800' range)... I was looking at the BofA building in SSP's diagrams last week and I was comparing them (coincedentally) to the library tower in Los Angeles since that is 310 meters. I think the top floor in the Library Tower is at the 290-295 meter mark, since the crown of that building is said to be a little over 15 meters high.

But the thing about the Comcast center is that its relatively bulkey all the way to the top! should have LOTS of floor space!! Because of that, this will be a very imposing tower..
