- Architect: Kohn Pedersen Fox
- Developer: Walnut Street Capital

- At 1,510 feet (460 meters) to the spire, the American Commerce Center would surpass the Comcast Center as Philadelphia's tallest building, and would be the tallest building in the United States between Chicago and New York City.

- The American Commerce Center would likely be second tallest building in the United States and the Americas, surpassed only by the 1,776-feet (541 meter) tall One World Trade Center in New York City, scheduled for completion in 2013.

- Completion was originally proposed for 2012 and later 2014. But the developer said in a statement, that construction will not start until an anchor tenant is found for the project. However, the project has approved by the City Council in 2009.
