I like the open stairwells at the top. That's something different.

PNC Tower Approved




Quote:
PNC, already a prominent aspect of Pittsburgh’s downtown skyline, is moving forward with plans for a $400 million high rise set to exceed the industry’s top sustainability standards, LEED Platinum.

The new complex, planned for Wood Street between Forbes and Fifth Avenue, will boast more than 800,000 square feet of office space for more than 3,000 employees, with ample parking for up to 136 vehicles.

---

The area’s city planning commission voted to approve the 33-story project on Tuesday. “We think the Tower at PNC Plaza will be a destination. We think it will draw people from around the world who will want to come and see this building and, hopefully, we'll find some people who will want to emulate it,” says Gary Saulson, director of corporate real estate for PNC.

The company hopes to complete the building process by June 2015.
Site clearance should begin soon and construction may start in Q2 2012.

It's a very nice tower. But it's kinda sad that a few of the older buildings have to be demolished. But it could be for the better.

PNC ready to deconstruct site for skyscraper

"Tuesday, February 28, 2012
By Mark Belko, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It's time to bid adieu to a rundown block of Wood Street. But not with a stick or two of dynamite.

Noralco Corp., the same contractor tearing down the Civic Arena, will begin work this week clearing a path for the construction of PNC Financial Services Group's new 33-story skyscraper, the Tower at PNC Plaza.

"The beginning of this project puts Pittsburgh another step closer to reclaiming its heritage as an architectural innovator and leader," said Gary Saulson, PNC's director of corporate real estate..."

"...The new building, occupying the block of Wood between Forbes and Fifth, should start rising by the summer of 2013. The $400 million mostly glass skyscraper is expected to be ready for occupancy by June 1, 2015."

I wonder if they could possibly reconstruct the buildings being torn down somewhere else in Pittsburgh, or if they'll just toss what they take down.

That's like suggesting we rebuild the civic arena in Robinson. Although it would be nice.

Cement trucks are on site as of a few days ago. I didn't have the time or motivation to take a pic.

Caissons
Caisson work began August 20, 2012 and will continue for three months.

Impacts: Work will continue over two shifts, Monday through Saturday, with the second shift concluding at midnight. The subcontractor is minimizing noise during the late hours as much as possible. Vehicular traffic on Forbes will temporarily shut down during evening hours to allow for truck deliveries of large equipment. Pedestrian traffic will not be affected.

The crane is up. I walked by at noon today and saw that the crane is fully assembled. I couldn't tell if it was running but it is ready to go. Steel work is still roughly at street level.

The signage still indicates "Summer 2015" "THE ROOFTOP RECYCLES RAINWATER" "Can we grow gardens in the sky?" "THE TOWER AT PNCPLAZA" "The greenest Skyrise in the world"


I took plenty of photos but had forgotten that SSC doesn't host photos. Sorry, it's not worth setting up an account to share from an external service.
