Design Update: The Tower at PNC Plaza

PNC Financial Services Group is a standard-bearer for sustainable design. To a real estate portfolio replete with green branch banks, offices and mixed-use towers, the company adds a new headquarters that raises the bar for energy response and drives workplace performance to new levels.          

With our newest Design Update, we celebrate the bank’s pioneering vision for The Tower at PNC Plaza and the design team’s creation of “a building that breathes.” The first digital publication in an ongoing series showcasing design innovation, this edition is being released in conjunction with Greenbuild 2012.
