Did you know: As the building was under construction, in March 2006, developers ran into trouble with Philadelphia’s Plumbers Union Local 690, which had issues with the building’s waterless urinals. The waterless urinals were part of the plan to make the Comcast Center an “environmentally friendly” building because they would save an extra 1.6 million US gallons of water a year. The plumbers union opposed the waterless urinals, because they would provide less work for the plumbers.
