Cira Centre

Philadelphia’s Cira Centre adds an impressive contemporary element to the city’s historic architecture. Designed by famed architect Caesar Pelli, the 436', 28-story, office high-rise is sheathed in glass, contrasting with the limestone exterior of the neighboring 30th Street Station. The skyscraper offers a state-of-the-art office and conference center, a modern restaurant/ lounge, and a fitness center.

DORMA's contribution to the project
Specifiers turned to DORMA Architectural Hardware’s family of products, which blend seamlessly with the modern glass exterior while providing the functionality needed for such a versatile, high traffic building. The entrance hardware selected had to be minimal, yet reliable and secure.
