New Comcast tower: Subcontractors file $5 million in liens

Another round of mechanic's liens, this time totaling around $5 million, has been filed against entities involved in the development of the Comcast Technology Center in Center City.  This group of liens were filed in February and March in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. As the developer, Liberty created entities for each component of the mixed-use project, such as the office, hotel, public space and three residential units.  When asked about the new liens, Driscoll, through a spokeswoman, issued a statement that said the company remains "focused on the completion of the new Four Seasons hotel and working on a mutually satisfactory and expeditious close-out of the project with Liberty Property Trust, Comcast and the subcontractors." A flurry of mechanic’s liens totaling millions of dollars were filed last December by subcontractors who worked on the construction of the building.
