Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro recently toured the 26-story FNB Financial Center, F.N.B. Corp.’s new headquarters.

“By investing heavily in Pittsburgh and building its new headquarters there — FNB Financial Center — FNB is sending a powerful message about their commitment to Western Pennsylvania,” Shapiro said. “FNB leadership is committed to growing here in Pennsylvania and supporting communities across our commonwealth, and I’m hopeful FNB Financial Center will serve as an engine for growth in Pittsburgh and the entire region.”

FNB Financial Center is located in a historically majority-minority community. FNB’s development team has involved women-owned businesses and minority-owned businesses in the construction.

“FNB’s investment in FNB Financial Center drives employment opportunities and economic expansion that translate directly to broader prosperity for our communities,” said  FNB Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Vincent J. Delie, Jr. “We appreciate the support we have received from the Governor’s Office and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania throughout our project’s planning and implementation and are proud of our Company’s role in Pittsburgh’s bright future.”

The company also invested in a fund that provides capital for minority-owned construction firms and supported job training programs. It helped monetize the Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance tax benefit, which generated approximately $7.2 million for the community. FNB also has financed multiple projects in the Hill District.

FNB Financial Center will open later this year. It is expected to jumpstart nearly $1 billion in economic expansion for the region.
