fifth third bank tower

Sign in to follow this  


i added the Fifth Third tower in its correct spot there was no Pittsburgh version of this tower so i used the only version i could find and it was from Louisville, kentucky. the actual building does not look like this its called gulf tower but regardless adding a fifth third tower in its correct spot has increased the realism plus this building provides jobs.

one thing i like about this Fifth third tower is that its not as tall as the other skyscrapers in pittsburgh. you can see in this picture that US steel tower is larger. Pittsburgh has the tallest skyscapers between New york city and chicago this is becasue they produced alot of Steel in there factories so building skyscrapers locally was much cheaper. even Cleveland, ohio and detroit ,michigan which are the largest cities in population Between Newyork city and chicago have smaller skyscapers. Pittsburgh is a example of a city that shows us a small populated city can still have tall skyscrapers.

the yankee traders in the 1700s would sail up and down the ohio river eventually reachin new orleans which was ruled by spain in its west florida province. reaching new orleans with a ship full of goods and selling them was the goal. local banks in towns along the river or near it could keep it safe while you travel and trade along the ohio river water way.
