Now offically called 11 Stanwix Street, this distinctive skyscraper was completed in 1970 for the Westinghouse Corporation and is still referred to as Westinghouse Tower.
Founded in 1986 by enginner and entrepreneur George Westinghouse (1846-1914), the Westinghouse House Electric Company pioneered long-distance power transmission and high-voltage transmission. The company received the rights for the first patent for alternating-current transmission from inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) and unveiled the technology for lighting in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
After ownership and name changes in the 1990s, the company continues the Westinghouse legacy with a smaller operation based in rural Butler County.
The impressive 23-floor tower rises 355 above downtown along the Monongahela River. Its distinctive black facade adds a unique element to Pittsburgh's skyline.
Management of 11 Stanwix is the responsiblity of the commercial real estate firm, CB Richard Ellis.
