Unfortunately you are likely correct. Speculation is that will become a sort Comcast 2 building (basically right next door and likely significantly smaller than either the ACC (obviously) or the current Comcast building. If it brings jobs to the city it is still good but not an iconic monster based on what is rumored. I wonder if there will still be a hotel companent as the city needs more rooms for the expanded convention center.

Also hope there is beeter mixed use than the Comcast (1) as this area is adding 4 seperate large scale builds (3) and one conversion which will add as many as 3,000 new residents to this specific few block area which has long been a commercial dead zone after 6. Though the outdoor space at table 31 is actually nice. The AAA building is being converted into retail with a new tower on top. The Murano still cant lease thew retail space so in general wonder what will be come of this area.

I also saw that three blocks away the Edgewater is looking to double its size with a new town on top of their parkeing deck and a rooftop pool, this area could add a lot of residential.

Problem is the city needs more jobs!

Actually Philadelphians are used to this sort of thing. Only a small fraction of projects like this, introduced with lots of publicity, ever come out of the ground.

A similar but smaller thread on the American Commerce Center has been merged into this larger thread.

I hate to say this but I wish Philly was more like New York City when it comes to building skyscrapers. New York city is well on its way to making the Freedom Tower complete. I wish Philly could do the same when it comes to the ACC Tower.

One World Trade Center - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not necessarily. The property was sold and the ACC won't be built, but it doesn't mean this lot won't be getting some kind of development. Something will be built here, it just won't be a supertall skyscraper.

Hopefully not the American Commerce Parking lot.
