Comcast Spectacor Bringing $80M Office Tower to the Philadelphia Sports Complex

by Steve Lubetkin
Comcast Spectacor and The Cordish Companies will build 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, near the redeveloped office campus at The Navy Yard.
Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle and Philadelphia based BLT Architects, Pattison Place will incorporate 200,000 square feet of new construction, class-A office space featuring a grand 4,000 square-foot lobby with 35-foot ceiling heights, including 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. With 12-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, Pattison Place will offer one-of-­a-kind panoramic skyline views of downtown Philadelphia, the surrounding Sports Complex and neighboring Navy Yard.

“We’re thrilled to partner with The Cordish Companies and launch the next phase of development within the Philadelphia Sports Complex,” said Dave Scott, chairman and CEO, Comcast Spectacor. “Pattison Place presents a unique and compelling opportunity in the Sports Complex and builds on the continued success of Xfinity Live!. We’re looking forward to making additional announcements as our growing neighborhood expands in new and exciting directions.”
Pattison Place will be within walking distance to SEPTA, near interstates I- 95, I-76 and I-476, and minutes away from both Center City and the Philadelphia International Airport. The tower will feature first class amenities including exterior signage, roof decks, fitness facilities, and on-site parking.

“It is incredibly exciting for The Cordish Companies to grow our partnership with Comcast Spectacor to deliver a signature, class-A office tower, ” says Blake Cordish, principal of The Cordish Companies. “Pattison Place will offer first class amenities in an unparalleled location amid Philadelphia’s professional sports teams.”

Details for Pattison Place arrive at an exciting time as the Wells Fargo Center is conducting an extensive, $250 million multi-year transformation.
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 a 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.
