Sited at Pittsburgh, USA, the Three PNC Plaza will be the next green skycraper in town. It’s designed by Gensler and expected to open in early 2009 as a sustainable mixed-use tower in the U.S. complete with its LEED crertification.
The 23-storey structure will comprise 780,000 square feet and will feature office space, 28 condominiums, a restaurant, retail space, underground parking, and a Fairmont Hotel. The front of the plaza will feature a large public park, and the top 10 floors will be occupied by the hotel. The 100,000-square-foot underground parking will take up 3 stories, and provide 330 parking spaces.
