Some interesting facts about the Comcast Center:

As of 8/19/05 less than 30 percent of Comcast Center's office space remains available for lease. The building will include a public recreational park and a new entrance to Suburban Station. Some of its retail space will extend the Suburban Station underground concourse. In addition, there will be a 500-seat concourse-level food court and a 120-space private parking garage.As to the second 16-20 story tower Comcast has the option to request the additional building to be constructed on the property.

I never did understand what that little wall was doing there either.

A) That photo is by giovanni sasso. Give credit where credit's due.

B) That is a mock-up of the facade and a full floor office.

A green Comcast Center

If anyone else likes to keep up to date on Green Design, I found an article published last year but it was still my first time reading about it...the article can be found via the Philadelphia Business Journal at http://www.bizjournals.com/philadelp...10/story3.html

BTW, why is the title of this thread spelled "Centre" when it's "Center". This building ain't in Canada.

Is that an American using sarcasm? .

Anyway, it is nice to here major companies being so active in making a building enviromentally friendly. Although it may turn out to be a cheaper option in the long run due to reduced energy use. I hope this can be a good example to other especially in America. Where the enviroment is so often disregarded in favour of making more money.

Normally architects want to see how the building will look in reality, building a piece of the building (or try to find solutions before a difficult part is built, to avoid problems.)

The glass thing on the left.

Will that facade that is being shown be part of this building, or is it just for a display?

That mockup is just for display.

PhillyPhilly, TalB is getting these photos from the Comcast Center thread at SSP. I'd recommend viewing the first post of that thread for pertinent info on the project.

Since nobody from SSP comes here and gives the updates, then there is no other choice. Unless you are going to give the updates, stop complaining. Either way, the pics are credited, so it's not as if I was saying that they were mine. If there are misguided fourmers who believe that those are my pics, then that's not my issue nor is it those who don't read the first page of this thread or any others. One a sidenote, I don't find that statement from you or donybrx to be funny.

Updating us all

I don't care where TalB got the pics, he gave them credit and it saves me time from looking at 20 different sites to get them or going to the site myself. THANKS to all for their pics :-) Oh and happy Holidays

In Volguus Zildrohar's rendering it would be a shame if the second Comcast building is limited to 16 stories. From that view another 700 + foot tower to the right of Comcast Center, filling in that gap, would be simply spectacular. That would be six 700' towers in a 4 or 5 sq. block area. Thats impressive. Seeing how Philly likes to do things in pairs?
