Three PNC Plaza is a 361 ft (110 m) tall skyscraper in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was announced on December 19, 2005 and completed in 2009 with 23 floors. It was the tallest building constructed in the city since Highmark Tower was completed in 1988, until The Tower at PNC Plaza was completed in 2015. It contains 326,000 square feet (30,300 m2) of office space, a 185-room Fairmont Hotel, and 28 condominium units.[1] The $179 million ($234 million in current dollars) project created 800 construction-related jobs with a $35 million payroll ($45.8 million in current dollars).[2] Thirteen buildings were demolished to make way for the building.

Three PNC Plaza is a LEED certified green building. It is one of the nation's largest mixed use green buildings.[3]

International law firm Reed Smith moved their corporate headquarters into the building.
