JLL Joins Pittsburgh’s Elite Skyline with New Signage Overlooking Market Square

Commercial Real Estate Firm Reaffirms Growth, Installs Building Identification Signs Atop JLL Center


PITTSBURGH, April 14, 2016 – Today JLL Pittsburgh announces its new building signage atop its future headquarters at JLL Center, as it officially joins the city’s elite skyline of business leaders. The new signage includes two building identification signs featuring the firm’s letters and logo—one facing east and another facing west.

Market Leader and Managing Director JC Pelusi said the signs signify JLL’s commitment to the city, and also reinforce the firm’s leadership role and its growing involvement in the region’s most prominent development projects. To name a few, JLL is currently working with the Pittsburgh Penguins to develop 28 acres at the former Civic Arena site, and with Continental Real Estate Companies on the leasing and continued office development on the North Shore.

“Having a visible presence locally is a reflection of our dedication to the city’s growth,” said Pelusi. “We’re proud to be part of a community that’s in such a vibrant state, characterized by the ongoing revitalization of the downtown area. Market Square in particular continues to be a hub of activity for our region.”

JLL is confident the new signage will communicate the brand’s identity beyond the real estate industry, and will give current and future employees a sense of pride, while supporting recruiting efforts. Pelusi noted that the firm has grown its local presence from 50 to 450 employees over the last eight years, and on average is hiring 40 to 50 people per year.

The firm’s Pittsburgh team will relocate to its 55,000-square-foot hub in JLL Center at Tower Two-Sixty in May. Contact JLL for more information or to lease space at the highly sustainable, trophy-class JLL Center at Tower Two-Sixty.
