THE TOWER AT PNC PLAZA
THE GREENEST BUILDING IN THE WORLD
The Tower at PNC Plaza incorporates technology to lower energy usage and naturally cool and heat the office space. A double-skin façade
allows fresh air to enter and pass to the interior, and a “solar chimney” at the core of the tower allows warm air to rise throughout the building.

PNC officials said the two systems should allow for natural ventilation at least 42 percent of the year. Also, a water recycling and treatment
system reuses and treats rain and wastewater for flushing, cooling and irrigation. PNC officials said the tower is 50 percent more energy
efficient than standard buildings and saves 77 percent more water.
Rising 33 stories near the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, The Tower at PNC Plaza opened in October 2015 as
PNC’s new corporate headquarters. The building, which will host more than 2,000 employees, represents the innovative and pioneering
spirit of Pittsburgh and PNC’s commitment to that community. Incorporating state-of-the-art green technology, including a double-skin
façade and solar chimney, the tower was designed to exceed LEED Platinum certification and to be the greenest office tower in the
world.
