Foster + Partners completes Philadelphia's tallest building
Foster + Partners' Comcast Technology Center skyscraper in Philadelphia contains "Silicon Valley-style" work spaces topped with a 12-storey Four Seasons hotel.

The British firm's 341-metres-tall skyscraper at 1800 Arch Street is built next to the Comcast Center, which was completed in 2008, to create a campus for cable company Comcast.

The Comcast Technology Center comprises three stepped glass structures with a central glass spine that is flanked by glass elevators on either side. The spire rises well above the neighbouring 297-metre-high Comcast Center to give the new tower the title of the city's tallest building.

Inside, the high-rises has a diverse mix of functions including open and airy work spaces and television studios for NBC10 and Telemundo62; shops, bars and restaurants that are open to the public; site-specific artwork; and the Four Seasons Philadelphia.

Is it officially done? Time to end the thread?
