Brightening the holiday season and beyond, DLC has partnered with the City of Pittsburgh by providing $150,000 for new lighting to commemorate the centennial of the City-County Building. The building’s front exterior is now outfitted with 34 permanent, programmable LED light fixtures that have the capability to showcase a unique array of color schemes in differing time intervals all year-round.
The first City-County Building tree lighting ceremony took place in 1915, two years prior to the building opening in December 1917. One hundred years later, on Nov. 17, DLC’s President and CEO Richard Riazzi joined Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh in a ceremony to light the building’s exterior and the official City-County holiday tree.
Additional Holiday Activities
Duquesne Light also partnered with the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy to illuminate 14 trees in the recently restored Mellon Square Park as part of the company’s efforts to brighten the holiday season.
