Comcast plans to build a $1.2 billion, 1,121-foot-high skyscraper in Philadelphia. The 59-story tower, which would be the company's "dedicated home," will be a joint project with Liberty Property Trust, a real estate investment trust that will assume 20% ownership. Work on the stainless steel-and-glass building designed by Norman Foster is slated to begin this summer and, when finished in 2017, will be the "tallest building [in the U.S.] outside of New York and Chicago."
