PITTSBURGH - DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know the first all-aluminum building was built in Pittsburgh? The Alcoa Building opened in August 1953 as the first aluminum-faced skyscraper that stands at 30-stories and 410-feet with thin stamped aluminum panels forming the exterior walls. Originally the headquarters for the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA), the unique aluminum walls of the building are 1/8 inch thick, which gives the building a very light weight and economical design. It was renamed the Regional Enterprise Tower in 2015.
