PNC announced yesterday that they’re building a 40-story tall green skyscraper that will alter the Pittsburgh skyline.
Here’s what we’ll be seeing come 2015:
I like. I like tall buildings in our skyline. I like tall glass buildings in our skyline.
Over in Philly, they’re scratching their heads as to why PNC chose Pittsburgh over them.
The biggest bank in Pennsylvania plans a 40-story, $400 million, 800,000-square-foot, “green” downtown office tower that will put 2,500 tradespeople back to work.
That tower will rise, not in Philadelphia, but in little Pittsburgh, where PNC Financial Services Group Monday announced its new headquarters.
I understand Philly is bigger than Pittsburgh, but “little” Pittsburgh?
It’s not like PNC chose to build the tower in Erie or Altoona or Conshohocken, which by the way is a fun word to say.
I like to use it as a swear word. “I can’t get this conshohocken’ stain out of the carpet. I’m going to kick the conshohocken’ dog.”
But yes, “little Pittsburgh” won out over “big, giant, dirty, smelly, conshohocken’ Philadelphia.”
What? Isn’t that the opposite of little?
