Industrialist David Park chose the celebrated New York architect George Post to build the first high rise in Pittsburgh with automatic elevators. The 15-story, Beaux Arts style building was completed in 1896, and is detailed with atlas figures called telamones, ornate columns and a circular elevator lobby. Post is also known for designing the enormous Manufactures and Liberal Arts Building at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago and the New York Stock Exchange.
Your Experience: People will experience some of the gorgeous architecture throughout the building including the marbled floor entrance, the cornice at the top of the building, and the various office suites located throughout.
