The Tower at PNC Plaza is a planned skyscraper in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It will be the new corproate headquarters of the PNC Financial Services Group. It will have approximately 800,000 square feet (74,000 m2) and stand 32 stories (554 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 is estimated to cost $400 million. Construction started in Spring of 2012 and is planned to be completed in September of 2015. The tower will be the greenest Skyrise ever built and will exceed the current criteria for a LEED Platinum certified building. The Tower 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.
