Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/24/2015 -- Change is inevitable, especially in a major city. Every company wants to have the biggest building with the best views and newest technologies. And as the Philadelphia skyline undergoes its next growth spurt, Comcast will be able to take those honors with their Comcast Innovation and Technology Center. The 59-story planned structure in Center City Philadelphia will be the tallest building in America, outside of New York and Chicago. Construction of the $1.2 billion state-of-the-art skyscraper is scheduled to be completed in 2017, and it will expand the global headquarters of Comcast, as well as become the new home base for the Four Seasons Philadelphia Hotel, NBC 10 and Telemundo.
