On September 15, the Kahn-designed office building for Erie Insurance was officially dedicated and named the Thomas B. Hagen building.

The date for the event was significant; it marked the 68th anniversary of Hagen's first day of work as a part-time clerk. Quite a journey for the man who is now chairman of the Fortune 500 company!
The location, materials, and form of this seven-story office building blend the legacy of Erie Insurance with its modern future-forward vision. For example, the new building is connected to the Heritage Center, which was an original building for the company. Meanwhile, higher floors sheathed in glass step up and out from the surrounding structures giving employees flexible workspaces and incredible views of the building's green roofs.
