Tower City art deco masterpiece

Prominent mixed-use landmark overlooking Public Square. Interconnected office buildings, casino, two hotels, three rapid transit train lines, shopping and Terminal Tower. The Cleveland Union Terminal was built by the Van Sweringen brothers as a terminal for trains coming into Cleveland similar to NYC’s Grand Central Terminal. The art-deco complex was designed by Graham, Anderson, Probst & White and opened in 1927. The 52-story Terminal Tower was the fourth tallest building in the world when it opened in 1930, surpassed only by three skyscrapers in NYC. The complex originally contained the Higbee Department store and was renamed Tower City in 1991.Visit the Observation Deck if it is open.
