The Tower at PNC Plaza Opens
Good afternoon, everyone! Another Pittsburgh milestone was achieved on Friday, October 1st, as our city is now home to the world's greenest skyscraper! We locals have been watching the building go up since the spring of 2012, and as of this past Friday, construction has officially been completed. As I was walking around the city, I noticed that the fencing and jersey barriers that had been in place for so long were finally gone. The sidewalks were completed, the trees planted, and a majority of the construction vehicles were cleared from the area. But, I still didn't know the building had officially been opened. I actually found out over the weekend, when I came across an article highlighting the building's opening. If you're interested in learning more about the building and its many eco-friendly features, check out the following links: http://www.nextpittsburgh.com/city-design/the-tower-at-pnc-plaza-opens-as-the-greenest-office-building-in-the-world/ and https://www1.pnc.com/pnctower/
