About Mellon Bank Center

BNY Mellon Center is a 54-story skyscraper located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The height to its structural top is 792 ft (241 m). Construction was completed in 1990. The building was formerly called Mellon Bank Center until 2009, when it was renamed as part of a branding initiative for the newly formed Bank of New York Mellon. The building was designed by the architectural firm of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and is owned by HRPT Properties Trust. The building stands on the former site of the city's Greyhound bus terminal. The address of the building is 1735 Market Street (between Market Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, just east of 18th Street). BNY Mellon Center is part of a complex of office buildings known as Penn Center and as such is alternately known as Nine Penn Center. A shopping concourse underneath the building connects to an adjacent winter garden and Penn Center Suburban Station. BNY Mellon Center is currently the 161st tallest building in the world and the fourth tallest building in Philadelphia. A private club called the Pyramid Club occupies the 52nd floor of the building. Tenants include the headquarters of Sunoco and FMC Corporation.
