Its looking pretty damn sexy!

I agree that it would look good with a nice white antennae on top, but its not bad as is. Who knows, maybe in the future there will be a need for communications equipment on top.

Comcast is one of the most attractive towers going up in this country, without a doubt. Lucky Philadelphia for landing this one!

Until the World Trade Center starts to rise, the Comcast Center will hold it's place as my personal fav skyscraper under construction.

My personal fav is the Empire State Building, 2nd fav is the Chrysler Building - I am not certain as to where to place Comcast on my list since I have never officially written down my "personal fav skyscrapers", but trust me, it's in that imaginary list.

A huge congrats to Liberty Property Trust - they built Liberty Place and now Comcast Center.

Those folks at Liberty are awesome - I love you guys!! Keep building more, please.

It's a real shame that the building didn't have two more floors, and would thus be over 1,000ft... BUt as we all know, projects are built to a different set of numbers.

This building is built quite sturdy. But not as sturdy as the Empire State

My mom used to work in the brown building across the street from Comcast Center. It is so short, and it's 50 stories tall! Now it's the 5th tallest in the city.

I love the look of the tower but the structure looked really flimsy during construction.
