With arrival of new Four Seasons in Philly, what will come of the current one?

Though still a while off, the opening a new Four Seasons in Philadelphia will likely force a brand change for the Four Seasons that currently resides in the City of Brotherly Love, one that has been open since 1983.

As CBS Philly reports, the news comes after the announcement of a new Four Seasons hotel, which will occupy the top 12 stories of the new Comcast Tech Center at 18th and Arch Streets.

The current Four Seasons is located at One Logan Square, one of the city's most desirable locations.
