Now that PNC is building the World's most environmentally friendly skyscraper will Liberals stop hating banks?
The PNC Financial Services Group, Pittsburgh, has announced plans to construct what it is calling “the world’s most environmentally friendly skyscraper.” The Tower at PNC Plaza will be located on the southeast corner of Fifth Ave. and Wood St., the same Pittsburgh intersection where PNC has been headquartered for more than 150 years. Once complete in 2015, the approximately 40 story building will serve as PNC’s executive offices. “The Tower at PNC Plaza is an exclamation point on our investment in downtown Pittsburgh, and it reflects our commitment to community, competitiveness and innovation, as well as the comfort and productivity of our employees,” says James E. Rohr, chairman and chief executive officer of PNC. “When the Tower is complete, we will have invested more than $700 million in green buildings at the heart of the city.” At approximately 800,000 square feet, the Tower at PNC Plaza would be PNC’s largest building in Pittsburgh. Tentative plans call for approximately 300 underground parking spaces, street level retail and green rooftops. Erecting the planned $400 million tower is expected to create 2,500 construction jobs, with 500 workers at a time on the site during peak periods. http://www.cdrecycler.com/pnc-plans-worlds-most-environmentally-friendly-skyscraper.aspx To be fair they are creating over 3000 jobs. That has to account for something. They also have a woman director. http://cincinnati.com/blogs/businesspeople/2011/08/03/rose-named-managing-director-at-pnc/

no. A skyscraper is inherently non- democratic.

Banks represent capitalism. Hence, they will always annoy liberals. If banks were to take money out of accounts from people who save, and gave it to people who are in mortgage default... Then the liberals would like banks. But then,that is Communism... More

I wouldn't hold your breath. Democrats have had the same hate list for years. Oil Companies, Banks, Americans that disagree with them, etc

After what the "too big to fail" banks pulled leading up to 2008, and what they continue to do, I didn't know the loathing of big banking was a partisan issue still. Big banking is like a tornado, you know it's natural and a part of nature, you respect it for that, but you also know it's potential to level your house... More
