A new skyscraper is set to built in the 'City of Brotherly Love'...

 

 

It will be the tallest building in town.

 

Comcast announced plans to build a $1.2 billion, 1,121-feet tall technology center that, upon completion in late 2017, will be the largest building in the United States outside of New York and Chicago.

The new 59-story glass and steel Philadelphia fixture will be built across the street at 18th and Arch Streets, with construction set to start this summer.
