The majestic grand rotunda of the Pennsylvania Apartments in Pittsburgh, PA.
At the turn of the Century, a golden age when railroads were the fashionable way to travel, the then Pennsylvania Railroad erected a magnificent edifice, The Pennsylvanian Union Station. It was the gateway to Pittsburgh, the gateway to the West.
The spectacular entrance to this gateway is a National Treasure - The Rotunda. A grand circular dome, with skylight, supported by four arched corner turrents. Within the interior of the Rotunda are ornamental plaques, dated "1900", and naming the four great destinations - Pittsburgh, New York, Philadelphia and Chicago - serviced by Union Station. Above each plaque, the head of a woman, crowned with feathers, watching over these early travelers of a grand new age. From the Rotunda, the journey continues to the Grand Concourse, the central feature of the elegant Office Space and Special Events at The Pennsylvanian. Nearly 10,000 travelers a day journeyed through this majestic structure with its arched openings, marble floors, ornately decorated walls, and vaulted ceiling topped by a 40 foot high translucent skylight that bathes this space in natural light.
Adjoining the Grand Concourse, The Pennsylvanian Residential Apartments and Corporate Homes have their own private entry into a lifestyle of elegance and style reborn from a previous age.
