PNC's Green Buildings

PNC Firstside Center

At nearly 650,000 square feet — the equivalent of 12 football fields — this operations center opened in 2000 in Pittsburgh as the nation’s largest green building and first building certified under LEED version 2.0.


Three PNC Plaza

This LEED Gold certified high-rise complex opened in 2009 in downtown Pittsburgh as one of the nation’s largest green, mixed-use buildings.


The Net-Zero Energy Branch

This LEED Platinum certified branch opened in 2013 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., features 211 solar panels among other green technology and produces as much energy as it consumes.


500 Smithfield St.

In Pittsburgh, PNC completed a major restoration of this former Mellon Bank flagship branch that respects the building’s historical significance, achieved LEED Gold certification and provides an improved work environment for approximately 700 employees.


The Tower at PNC Plaza

The Tower at PNC Plaza opened in October 2015 as PNC's new corporate headquarters.  Incorporating state-of-the-art green technology, including a double-skin facade and solar chimney, the building was designed to exceed LEED Platinum certification and to be the greenest office tower in the world.
