First Look At The Sure-To-Be-Amazing Restaurant Located On The Top Floor Of The New Comcast Skyscraper, Almost 1,000 Feet Off The Ground
So the new Comcast Innovation and Technology Center. Pretty awesome news. For so many reasons — the jobs and economic impact, the impressive architecture, the new hotel, adding a new skyscraper to the city’s skyline… — but one of the elements that has us the most excited is the top-floor restaurant.
Yes, the restaurant that’s going to be located on the very top floor of the building — the 59th floor — offering unbelievable panoramic views of the city.
See, we’ve lamented the lack of an observation deck in the existing Comcast Center before, so we were beyond thrilled to learn of the plans for the new Four Seasons Hotel to be located on the top floors of the tower. And for a restaurant and lounge to grace the very top floor.
It’s just that this new Comcast tower restaurant is going to be on a whole new level. Literally and figuratively. The City Hall Tower Observation Deck is 500 feet above the ground. R2L is also 500 feet up. This new restaurant is going to be about 900 feet(!!) above the ground.
It’s going to be the highest publicly accessible point in Philadelphia by some 400 feet. And with that are going to come some breathtaking views and photo ops.
And while we know it’s going to take three years to build this thing, we are currently having some trouble containing our excitement.
Check out the video below for more of a sneak peek at the new tower.
