Terminal Tower

Everything is taller in Cleveland!

Located in Public Square in Downtown Cleveland, the Terminal Tower is one of Cleveland’s oldest and most famous buildings.  Although it is not the tallest building in America, however, it was the 4th tallest building in the world when it first dedicated in 1930.  During the skyscraper boom of the 1920’s and 1930’s, many major American cities began competing to build the tallest structures, even the face of the Great Depression.

Built at a cost of $179 million, the tower was meant to serve as an office building above Cleveland’s rail terminal.
