Apartment residents in the Middle City East neighborhood of Philadelphia
have a number of attractions to enjoy under the shadows of the city's tallest building, the Comcast Center, which is also the tallest "green" building in the country.
This neighborhood comprises a swath of business and residences surrounding the City Hall and 15th Street subway stations. The Comcast Center itself is a popular destination for local apartment renters, as it is open to the public and contains a number of notable features, including a 2,000 square-foot LED video wall - the largest in the world, according to center officials - which projects computer-generated imagery throughout the day. A technological marvel, apartment residents also enjoy the Comcast Center for its eight-story "Winter Garden" and energy-saving wrap-around "Glass Curtain," which offers panoramic views of the city.
