Comcast Spectacor and The Cordish Companies are teaming up on an $80 million office tower in the heart of South Philadelphia's Sports Complex, the companies announced Thursday.
The Class-A office building, planned for a site next to Xfinity Live!, will be named Pattison Place. It is expected to bring 1,670 new jobs and generate $295 billion in economic benefits for the city and state over a 30-year-period.
Pattison Place will cover 200,000 square feet of new construction, including 20,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. The building will feature 35-foot ceiling heights, 12-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic skyline views of Center City, the surrounding stadiums and the Navy Yard.
The building is designed by Beyer Blinder Belle and Philadelphia-based BLT Architects. It will be within walking distance of SEPTA's NRG Station and in close proximity to interstates I- 95, I-76 and I-476, with on-site parking at the tower.
Scott said the announcement, which coincides with the ongoing $250 million renovation of the Wells Fargo Center, will be followed up with additional future developments surrounding Xfinity Live!
