Alcoa Inc. (from Aluminum Company Of America) was founded in 1888 and is the world's third largest producer of aluminum.
In 1998, Alcoa moved its corporate center to a six-story aluminum and glass structure on Pittsburgh's North Shore. Its wave-form glass facade opens the entire building to the river, the city, and the southern sky. Inside is an open office environment designed to encourage chance encounters and informal discussions.
Other businesses rent office space in the state-of-the-art structure.
It is also home to the Isabella Street Cafe, which specializes in burgers and pizza.
The building is managed by the Rubinoff Company, a leading construction and building management firm.
Office hours vary per tenant.
The Isabella Street Cafe is open Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The center operates its own indoor parking garage.
