ABOUT THIS BUILDING
MCF is housed in the Frick Building — a prominent and identifiable landmark in Downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.
Henry Clay Frick, an entrepreneur and coke manufacturer who built a portfolio of commercial buildings in Pittsburgh, is the tower’s namesake. The structure is on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). On the site of the former Saint Peter Episcopal Church, the tower was built at the time directly adjacent to a building owned by Andrew Carnegie, who were fierce competitors.
