Press release just hit the inbox.
There’s going to be a big ass office tower built at the Sports Complex.
Here’s the info, cut and pasted specifically for that one idiot in the comments section:
Comcast Spectacor and The Cordish Companies announced new details today for Pattison Place, an $80 million, new construction Class-A office tower in the heart of the Philadelphia Sports Complex. Adjacent to Xfinity Live!, Pattison Place will offer an incredible office location amid the home venues of Philadelphia’s beloved professional sports teams, and stands in close proximity to The Navy Yard.
Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle and Philadelphia-based BLT Architects, Pattison Place will boast 200,000 square feet of new construction, Class-A office space featuring a grand 4,000 square foot lobby with expansive 35-foot ceiling heights, including 20,000 square feet of premier ground-floor retail. With 12-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, Pattison Place will offer one-ofa-kind panoramic skyline views of downtown Philadelphia, the surrounding Sports Complex and neighboring Navy Yard.
Pattison Place will be within walking distance to SEPTA, close proximity to interstates I- 95, I-76 and I-476, and minutes away from both Center City and the Philadelphia International Airport. The tower will feature unparalleled, first class amenities including exterior signage, roof decks, fitness facilities, and on-site parking.
Details for Pattison Place arrive at an exciting time as the Wells Fargo Center is in the midst of an extensive, $250 million multi-year transformation. The office tower adds $80 million of new development, complementing the world-class arena and creating a vibrant new construction, Class-A office presence in the heart of Philadelphia’s Sports Complex. In addition, Pattison Place will create 1,670 new jobs and generate $295 million in economic benefits to the City and State over a 30-year period.
Pattison Place is the first of several announcements for the expansion of Xfinity Live!. Since opening in 2012 in partnership between Comcast Spectacor and The Cordish Companies, Xfinity Live! has been the prominent dining, entertainment and hospitality anchor for the region, dramatically changing the fan experience for Flyers, Eagles, Phillies and 76ers fans, as well as out of town guests. Welcoming millions of visitors a year, Xfinity Live! has energized South Philadelphia and the surrounding sports complex via year-round events and experiences including concerts, festivals, family fun days, community functions, charity events, and watch parties.
