It looks as though construction crews are prepping the surface lot on the corner of 18th and Arch Street. We passed by the site yesterday to see a large crane being placed in the former parking lot that was cleared a few weeks back. Could it be for some sort of groundbreaking in the near future for say, a 59-story, 1,100 plus feet high skyscraper designed by Sir Norman Foster? A summer 2014 groundbreaking was always in the plans for the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center but no firm date has been announced. Are we finally seeing the beginning stages of the tower that will soon change the Philadelphia skyline? · Details Revealed for Comcast Innovation & Technology Center [Curbed]
