PNC Bank bringing the "green" to Lincoln Park, Lake View

Down go gas stations and up go PNC Bank green branches... like the one above in Lincoln Park at Halsted and Wrightwood that was a Shell gas station. Another branch shown below at the corner of Ashland and Addison in Lake View was formerly a Shell gas station. Will green branches be enough to switch your bank?

If you walk around the North Side of Chicago, you probably have noticed PNC Bank's green branches. It's an impressive green branding initiative that goes back to 2002. The company now has over 97 LEED certified buildings.

This Northcenter green branch location is on the site of a former independent gas station at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Berteau. It was most recently marketed to be a condo building prior to PNC acquiring the land.
