What's up with those people on those beams! I was like "whats going on?", "Are there transparent banisters or summat?" but after another look realised they were figures ha ha!!

I bet it freaks people out when they go in there for the 1st time.

the overall form of the building is decent, but the glass cladding is what makes it INCREDIBLE! it looks way better than it did in the renderings

Looks like there might be a Comcast Center II coming on the same block albeit probably much smaller

no offense to the phillyfolk...but why would your program's first choice be phila? our program chose italy/austria/germany. just seems odd to go so close to home base.

Yes, that joint is Comcastic, but it would have been nice if they added a spire like the other two skyscrapers in Philadelphia Liberty Ctr. Nice pointy buildings pointing towards the blue Pennsylvania sky

Every other city could only wish to have towers this great. The view from the street is amazing, and more.

Its 3rd year field trip. They are always a bus ride away. The 4th year trip is a longer distance. Our choices for 3rd were Cincinnati or Philadelphia. Half the class is going to one, the other half to the other. Im just happy im going to the better one!
