Fakten

  • The Farmers Deposit Bank was one of the largest and tallest buildings in Pittsburgh when completed.
  • Originally built with a beaux-arts design. The lower façade contained allegorical figures by sculptor J. Massey Rhind.
  • By the 1960s the building was fast becoming obsolete. The owners reskinned the entire facade with a new modernist curtain wall. Nevertheless, an anchor tenant was never found for the building and it was torn down by the late 1990s.
  • In 1992 a mural designed by Judy Penzer depicting Pittsburgh Pirates baseball greats Roberto Clemente and Bill Mazeroski, Pittsburgh Steelers football greats Mean Joe Greene and Jack Lambert, and Pittsburgh Steelers hockey great Mario Lemieux was painted on the southeast corner of the building.
  • The 7-story Piatt Place now stands on the site.
  • On May 25, 1997, 400 pounds of explosives were used to reduce the building to a pile of rubble.
