ABOUT THIS BUILDING
The Henry W. Oliver Building was built from 1907-1910 by Daniel Burnham. Before you enter, notice the impressive terracotta clad over the steel frame structure. Henry Oliver planned that the building would serve to consolidate the management of his steel and coal operations, and as a way to leave a mark on the city’s growing skyline.
In 2015 McKnight Realty Partners recently converted the top 11 floors of the building into the Embassy Suites, Hilton Downtown Pittsburgh. The hotel’s Sky Lobby on the 25th floor provides guests a memorable check-in experience, offering panoramic views of Pittsburgh from 348 feet up.
