PNC Bank logo to top Tampa's third-tallest building

TAMPA — Downtown Tampa, say hello to your newest logo: PNC Bank will replace Verizon atop the city's third-tallest skyscraper.

The bank announced Tuesday that it signed a multiyear lease with One Tampa City Center, the 38-story tower at 201 N Franklin St. Costs were not disclosed.

Starting in May, the bank will hang its logo at the skyscraper's crown and move its Tampa headquarters from the West Shore district to the tower's 15th floor.

"We're looking forward to becoming an even more integral part of the Tampa community," Joseph Meterchick, a PNC regional president, said in a statement.

The 735,000-square-foot tower was Florida's tallest when it was built in 1981, according to building data firm Emporis.

At 537 feet, it is now Tampa's third tallest, behind 100 North Tampa and the Bank of America Plaza.

PNC, one of the country's largest banks, has 23 offices and nearly $450 million in deposits in Tampa Bay alone, according to June data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
