Key Tower, Cleveland

Key Tower, Cleveland

Key Tower is a skyscraper on Public Square in downtown Cleveland designed by architect César Pelli. It is the tallest building in both the city and the state, the 18th tallest building in the United States and the 59th tallest building in the world. The top of the spire is the highest man-made point in Ohio. This 57-story building reaches 948 feet to the top of its spire, and it can be visible up to twenty miles away. It was originally built as the Society Center but was renamed when Key Bank acquired Society Bank. Society had recently acquired Ameritrust and canceled plans for an even taller building on Public Square. Key Tower was developed by the Richard E. Jacobs Group and is owned by Wells Real Estate Funds. Key Bank's headquarters occupy most of the tower.
