Facts

  • 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.
