|The building was built on the first petroleum site in the country. The pyramidal top illuminates at night and we will flash whenever the Pirates win a game or hit a homerun. At the very top is a weather telling light. Orange means the weather is good and blue means the weather is bad. For many years this was the tallest building in the City of Pittsburgh.|
