Philly Lives Goes Up!
The long anticipated South Philadelphia development, "Philly Live" has finally begun construction of the first phase of the project. Developers, Philadelphia-based sports and entertainment firm Comcast-Spectacor, and world-renowned developers The Cordish Company, have teamed up on this project, proposing a destination retail, dining and entertainment district at the Philadelphia Sports Complex. The 300k plus sqft. entertainment complex will host the largest sports bar in the world. The first phase will contain several restaurants, retail and the mega sports bar. Comcast Spectacor expects the construction of phase one to be complete in time for Opening Day for the Phillies in April, 2012. Construction on the rest of the project, including a hotel has not been determined and depends heavily on the economy.
