  • Still two years out from the delivery of its Comcast Innovation & Technology Center and its 1.7 million-square-feet of space, Comcast has opted to lease some 81,000-square-feet, over four-floors, at Two Logan Square, reports the Philadelphia Business Jounral’s Natalie Kostelni. The corporation has struggled in recent years to supply the Center City office space needed to grow its tech and media operations.
  • A crane this morning lowered modular apartment units down along Sansom Street, where it intersects with Farragut Street (itself running between 46th and 47th); this 3-story building follows a similar set-up delivered by the same Sansom Street Development LP last spring just one block to the east, says West Philly Local.
  • At the Schuylkill Center’s Wildlife Clinic in Roxborough, the most pronounced harbinger of spring is not the shift in temperature or the amount of daylight, but the arrival of the first of hundreds of young animals, orphaned or injured, that come each year to be cared for by its dedicated, yet understaffed crew. The Roxborough Review enjoins its readers to assist in the Schuylkill Center’s “Campaign for the Clinic” by donating what it can, such as paper towels, Dawn dishwashing detergent, trash bags, and the like.

  1. Would not be too surprised to see Comcast purchase one of the two Liberty towers on 16th and Market for permanent use vice constructing a third tower on land already purchased.

  2. It would be nice if they would build the smaller tower over the entrance to the marketplace. That they were originally going to build.
