I just had a look at page 1 and the renders of the time:
we're all used to outstanding architectural visions that end up butchered with a shitty cladding, but has anyone ever seen renders as positively deceiving as the ones offered for Comcast (quite bland, pale, nothing REALLY exiciting _ excluding the design) for a result like this?
I mean... I would have dreamt of so many towers back in 2005 but not so much this one. And look at what we got: a titan of a beauty!

I l-o-v-e the thing!!!!

From The Philadelphia Inquirer 6/1


Reaching new heights on the city skyline , the Comcast Center presents its glassy facade. The top glows at night, asserting its presence, though by daylight its exoskeleton makes the building appear unfinished to some.


The Winter Garden lobby, 120 feet high, at the Comcast Center, with life-size sculptures of people walking. The tower sits back on a large plaza. It is expected to be part of a Rockefeller Center-type ensemble.


The Comcast Center, which sits back on a plaza designed by Olin Partnership in the 1700 block of JFK Boulevard, is expected to be part of a Rockefeller Center-type ensemble. The skyscraper is to be formally dedicated Friday.


On the Comcast Center's 43d and 44th floors , above, is Ralph's Cafe. At left, in the ground floor's Winter Garden, are more of the lobby's sculptures of walkers - these ones with a decidedly acrobatic bent.

Does anyone have pics of the huge HDTV they're unveiling over the lobby?

Me too. The building shape is, I would say, OK. But the cladding is... mind-blowing. And in combination this building is truly a jewel. For me it is n.1 modern (and completed) US skyscraper.
