Check out First Commonwealth's Pittsburgh regional office

Jesse Brocious, vice president of real estate and facilities at First Commonwealth Financial Corp., figures the bank looked at 30 buildings within Pittsburgh before deciding last fall to move its regional operations from the Frick Building to the Union Trust Building. In fact, First Commonwealth (NYSE:FCF) did an initial look at Union Trust early into its search, checked out options downtown, in the Strip District and North Side, then swerved back and was able to seal a deal. “At the end of the day, we were going to be along Grant Street,” said president and CEO Mike Price.
