The Comcast Center

The Comcast Center Review

Now Philadelphia's tallest building, the 975-foot Comcast Center is also one of its most ecofriendly: the 58-story design by Robert A.M. Stern Architects uses 40% less water than a traditional office building and also deploys its glass-curtain-wall facade to reduce energy costs significantly. Not to be missed is The Comcast Experience, a 2000-square-foot high-definition video "wall" in the building's "winter garden" lobby, which also features "Humanity in Motion," an installation of 12 life-size figures by Jonathan Borofsky that appear to be striding along girders 110 feet above. The building is also the site of an upscale food court, a high-end Italian restaurant and steak house, and a seasonal, outdoor café.
