Special Events to Recognize Landmark Donors

Landmarks Heritage Society members will be acknowledged for their significant financial support in 2006/07 at two special events on September 26th at two historic downtown buildings.
All who made planned gift commitments or gifts of $1,000 or more during that period have been invited to a reception and tour of The Granite Building, formerly the German National Bank Building. Landmarks President Arthur Ziegler will not only be on hand to thank donors for their support, but will give his annual preservation report where he will focus on how Landmarks has used preservation to promote economic development in the region.
Following The Granite Building tour & reception, Heritage Society members who have made irrevocable planned gift commitments to Landmarks will attend a dinner and program at The Duquesne Club, adjacent to The Granite Building. These donors will receive a personalized pen made from salvaged wood from a local historic building.
Both events are being underwritten by Alan Greenberg and Matt Thompson of The North Shore Group, Citi Smith Barney in New York. The Granite Building owner Holly Brubach has generously made her building available for an exclusive “under construction” tour. “In Landmarks board member Holly Brubach, we have a Pittsburgher who toured the world, then returned home to develop a downtown landmark for residential housing and retail use,” says Landmarks President Arthur Ziegler. “In Alan Greenberg and Matt Thompson, we have two out-of-state investment specialists who recognize the value of the Pittsburgh region and are actively
involved here. “It’s that type of external enthusiasm coupled with preservation easements and historic tax credits that’s driving useful development in the Pittsburgh market.” Heritage Society members who have not responded to their invitation are encouraged to do so as soon as possible.
