National City name going down in Cleveland

PNC Financial Services Group Inc., which took over Cleveland-based National City Bank, is looking to put its mark on the Cleveland skyline.

The city’s planning commission was asked to approve a design for bold, blue “PNC” signs to replace the green “National City” lettering atop the bank’s former headquarters building in downtown Cleveland.

Pittsburgh-based PNC Financial Services bought troubled National City Corp. for $5.6 billion in December using money from the government bank bailout.

Documents filed with planning officials show PNC plans to begin work on the sign changeover in late May.

City design review committee member Jack Bialosky Jr. said that while he’s sorry to see the National City name go, the plans for the new signs look good.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
