In this post, we will take a closer look at the four tallest buildings in Cleveland, showcasing their heights and the evolution of the city’s skyline.

Key Tower:

Standing tall at 947 feet, the Key Tower dominates the Cleveland skyline as the tallest building in the city. Completed in 1991, this iconic skyscraper is not only a symbol of modern architecture but also a hub for business and commerce. Designed by architect Cesar Pelli, Key Tower houses offices, retail spaces, and serves as a prominent landmark in the heart of downtown Cleveland.


Terminal Tower:

With a height of 708 feet, Terminal Tower has been a defining feature of Cleveland’s skyline since its completion in 1927. At one time it was the tallest building in North America outside of New York City from its completion in 1927 until 1964. Initially serving as a railway terminal and office space, it also held the title of the tallest building in Cleveland until Key Tower was built. Today, Terminal Tower continues to stand as a testament to the city’s architectural heritage and is a blend of both historical and modern influences. It is the most iconic structure in Cleveland. 


200 Public Square:

Completed in 1985, 200 Public Square is another skyscraper that contributes to Cleveland’s growing skyline. Rising to a height of 658 feet, this building houses offices, retail spaces, and a public plaza. Designed by the renowned architect Marcel Breuer, 200 Public Square adds a unique touch to the city’s architectural landscape, showcasing a mix of functionality and aesthetic appeal.


Sherwin Williams Headquarters:

Sherwin-Williams’ global headquarters are being built in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. In the photo above you can see the exterior nearing completion in January 2024. Final height for the new building will be 616ft making it the 4th tallest building in Cleveland. The new headquarters are expected to open by the end of 2024 and will house around 4,000 employees. 


Cleveland’s skyline has undergone significant transformations over the years, reflecting the city’s economic growth and development. The addition of these towering structures has not only changed the physical landscape but also contributed to the city’s identity as a hub of business and innovation. 
As Cleveland continues to grow and evolve, its skyline stands as a testament to the city’s progress and ambition. The tallest buildings, with their unique designs and heights, showcase the dynamic nature of Cleveland’s architecture.
