U.S. Steel Tower

U.S. Steel Tower, also known as the Steel Building (formerly USX Tower) is a 64-story, 256.34 m (841.0 ft) skyscraper with 2,300,000 sq ft (210,000 m2) of leasable space at 600 Grant Street in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is the tallest skyscraper in Pittsburgh, the fourth tallest building in Pennsylvania, and the 37th tallest in the United States.

The tower's original name when completed in 1970 was the U.S. Steel Building and was changed to USX Tower in 1988. The name was finally changed back to the U.S. Steel Tower in January 2002 to reflect U.S. Steel's new corporate identity (USX was the 1990s combined oil/energy/steel conglomerate). Although no longer the owner of the building, U.S. Steel is one of the largest tenants, occupying more than 500,000 sq ft (46,000 m2) of office space. The building is located at 600 Grant Street, ZIP code 15219.

Famous quotes containing the words tower and/or steel:

    The tower said, “One!”
    And then a steeple.
    They spoke to themselves....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I will be steel!
    I will build a steel bridge over my need!
    I will build a bomb shelter over my heart!
    But my future is a secret.
    It is as shy as a mole.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
