Hunter Roberts Construction Group provided pre-construction and construction management services for the development of Xfinity Live!, a high end destination retail, dining, and entertainment district in the area adjacent to the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia, PA. The location is on the former site of the Spectrum arena (1967-2010), which Hunter Roberts demolished to make way for the project.

The 60,000 SF Phase 1 portion of the project features retail and restaurant space including the “world’s largest multi-story sports bar.”
