Terminal Tower

Graham, Anderson, Probst and White
1923-34




Terminal tower, an important visual symbol of Cleveland, was the second tallest building in the world at the time it was completed (surpassed by the Woolworth Building in New York City).

The Key Center tower, completed in 1991, is now the tallest building in Cleveland.
 

Unique skyline identity

The building's name derives from the fact that it was built above rail lines--and it opened as Cleveland Union Terminal. The complex is situated in the southwest corner of the public square.
