This building is home to several businesses located in Pittsburgh, but it was originally commissioned, built and owned by PPG (Pittsburgh Plate Glass, Pittsburgh Paint & Glass, whatever...), a Fortune 200 company whose corporate headquarters still command the top floors. It is truly beautiful, but not much of a destination in & of itself (other than for architecture buffs). However, the square in the middle of the complex is a lovely place in all seasons... in the winter it has an ice skating venue where you can rent & skate around the "holiday tree", and during the other seasons it is much like a plaza in Europe, lots of tables for eating, resting & people watching. Sometimes you can find entertainment or political speakers holding court. It is very near Market Square, a great place to buy carry-out (or dine in) food, and venue for lunch time entertainment in the warmer months.
