Faits

  • The facade materials are glass and painted brick, with a base of limestone and polished black granite.
  • The first modern skyscraper in the United States.
  • City-wide, the building was second in height only to Philadelphia City Hall when completed. It retained this rank until the completion of 1818 Market Street in 1974.
  • It remained the tallest building in Philadelphia east of Broad Street until completion of The St. James in 2004.
  • The building was converted into a Loews Hotel in 1999-2000. Renovation from bank offices to the current hotel cost $115 million.
  • Originally built as the Philadelphia Savings Fund Society (PSFS) Building. It was purchased from Mellon Bank by Loews Hotels in 1997.
  • In recognition of its historical value, Loews Hotels kept the PSFS sign on top of the skyscraper.
  • This building was approved to be built just as the Great Depression started. The resulting drop in prices allowed more to be spent on interior details and finishes.
  • This is the tallest building completed in Philadelphia during the 1930s.
  • The PSFS Building was added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places in 1968, with National Register listing and National Historic Landmark Status granted in 1976.
  • The building received a 2001 Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Construction Award.
