The Tower at PNC Plaza is a skyscraper currently completing construction in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It will be the new corporate headquarters of the PNC Financial Services Group. It will have approximately 800,000 square feet (74,000 m2) and stand 33 stories (545 feet) tall. Nearby buildings totaling 37,000 square feet (3,400 m2), were purchased by PNC and deconstructed to make space for the Tower at PNC Plaza. The project was estimated to cost $400 million when announced in 2011 (or $419 million today). Construction started in spring of 2012 and is planned to be completed in September 2015. The tower will be the greenest Skyrise ever built and will exceed the current criteria for a LEED Platinum certified building. The Tower will feature numerous sustainable attributes such as an operable double skin facade, an onsite blue water reuse system, locally sourced building materials, fixtures and furniture made from recycled materials, and numerous other green strategies to substantially reduce the environmental impact of the building. Some of these features will enable the Tower's heating and cooling systems to operate in a "net-zero-energy state" up to 30% of the year.
The tower's "topping off" ceremony was held Tuesday, June 24, 2014 with William Demchak, PNC chairman, president and CEO, and Gary Saulson, director of corporate real estate hosting it on site.
