PNC Plaza is a skyscraper in Downtown, Louisville, Kentucky and located at 500 West Jefferson Street. Owned by Pittsburgh-based PNC Bank, the 29-story, 420-foot (128 m) high structure was designed by architect Welton Becket and was completed in 1971. A notable feature of the building is the pattern of pre-cast concrete panels on the exterior of its windows. The building, originally named Citizens Fidelity Plaza, was named after Citizens Fidelity Bank and renamed PNC Plaza when Citizens Fidelity was acquired by PNC Bank.
PNC Plaza became the tallest building in the state of Kentucky in 1971, but lost that distinction a year later when National City Tower was completed in 1972. PNC now owns both buildings due to its own acquisition of National City Corp. in an unrelated move.
The Jefferson Club, a private city club, was located on the top floor of the building, until closing in February 2010.
The building was purchased by Optima International of Miami for a $77 million cash and mortgage assumption deal that closed on September 21, 2011.
