PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Some workers have already moved into Philadelphia's tallest building, which is still under construction. 

Comcast Chairman Brian Roberts gave reporters a sneak peek inside the 60-story, $1.5 billion Comcast Technology Center at 18th and Arch streets. So far, 1,000 employees have moved in, with 4,000 expected by the end of the year.  

The building features a lobby that's open to the public, with end-cut white oak flooring and digital art on the ceiling.

Don't look for cubicles. The open workspaces resemble hotel lobbies, with plush chairs and artwork surrounded by natural light. And there are three-story "loft"-style workfloors in what the company calls a "vertical campus." There's fast wi-fi and cellular service throughout — even in the elevators. 

And Roberts says there are very few hardline telephones.

"You just program your PC. It follows you on your mobile phone," he said. "You can see who called, get your voicemail and travel around the building, and all your work goes with you."

WCAU-TV is moving its studios into the building, which will also house a Four Seasons Hotel opening next spring.
