PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Work on Comcast’s new skyscraper in Philadelphia is expected to begin soon following a giant concrete pour to form the foundation mat of the building.

WCAU (https://bit.ly/1zlJlYS ) reports that concrete began pouring at about 1 a.m. Saturday at the Center City site and continued through the day Saturday.

Dozens of trucks brought hundreds of loads to form the 10-foot-thick mat attaching the building’s core to bedrock.

Project manager Mike Ricchezza told the station that work on the core structure was expected to begin within a week and continue for about 16 months.

The Comcast Innovation and Technology Center will be the city’s tallest skyscraper, at 1,121 feet. The Comcast Center next door, opened in 2008, stands 975 feet.
