FROM THE ARCHITECTS:
Completed in October 2015, The Tower at PNC Plaza marks a new step in PNC’s efforts to revive downtown Pittsburgh. In designing this new 32-story corporate headquarters, Gensler and its partners set a new standard for sustainable skyscrapers, devising an innovative, low-energy strategy to heat and cool the building. From its one-of-a-kind, breathable double skin to its innovative workplace strategy, the LEED® Platinum-certified tower drives building performance to new levels. Through an integrated approach, the iconic tower advances the science of high-rise office buildings, introduces new benefits to the workplace and supports the community at large.
