The Comcast Center
Standing at a robust 975 feet tall, The Comcast Center is one of the tallest buildings in Philadelphia.
With its ambitious incorporation of eco-friendly technologies, it’s also one of the tallest “green” buildings in the country.
The building features a public plaza with a gorgeous fountain display, a dramatic eight-story “Winter Garden” and an energy-saving “glass curtain” that allows for a 360-degree view of Philadelphia’s urban landscape.
The Comcast Center also features a Sony Style Comcast Labs Store, which includes an “Interactive Technology Lab” that is open to the public.
The Market at Comcast Center, located right below the main lobby, offers more than 24,000 square feet of eateries and some 20 storefronts.
“The Comcast Experience,” at The Comcast Center is comprised of a 2,000-square-foot LED screen projecting computer-generated images so realistic they appear to jump out of the wall.
With a resolution 500 percent greater than that of an HD television, the video wall is a remarkable technological and artistic achievement.
The video wall, a giant HD video screen that is actually the largest four-millimeter LED screen in the world, is located right in the building’s publicly accessible main lobby, so everyone can enjoy it.
Cutting-edge sustainable design can be found in nearly every aspect of the building.

Comcast Center uses 40 percent less water than a typical office building, and fixtures will save more than three million gallons of drinking water annually.
Waterless urinals in all restrooms will save 1.2 million gallons of urinal-water use every year.
Shading on the plaza reduces the heat-island effect caused by pavement by 70 percent. A glass curtain blocks 60 percent of heat while allowing 70 percent of the sun’s visible light, reducing energy used for air conditioning while utilizing natural light to its fullest.
An under-floor water loop is used to cool the winter garden and sixth floor atrium floor during the summer and warm it during the winter, saving energy.
