The Tower at PNC Plaza is a planned skyscraper in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It will be the new world headquarters of the PNC Financial Services Group. It will have about 800,000 square feet (74,000 m2) and stand 32 stories 545ft tall. Nearby buildings totaling 31,000 square feet (2,900 m2), purchased by PNC for $18 million, were purchased and deconstructed to make space for the Tower at PNC Plaza. The construction budget is $400 million, and construction started in Spring of 2012, with an expected completion date of 2015. The tower will integrate many environmentally friendly features, such as fuel cells, solar panels, geothermal systems and other alternative power sources that will reduce carbon emissions. Other features include operable windows, a double glass facade to reduce cooling costs and promote natural airflow into the building, a high-efficiency climate-control system to heat or cool specific zones of the building as needed, and a pair of living rooftops to collect and channel rainwater and reduce heat gain. These features will be made possible by a rooftop "heat sink" and allow for a net zero energy usage for climate control.
