^Thank you, plinko - crazy to think I've been doing this since 1997 The rumor mill is going strong that they're going to be putting up a second tower sooner than later, on the site immediately to the left of the current HQ tower. Possibly something in the 400-500 foot range.

Great shots and what a huge change to the Cleveland skyline. Hopefully the rumors are true and we see another 500 footer in Cleveland's near term future.

Sorry to distract from the new tower but that old building on the right with the three inlets is simply amazing. What is it?

And is downtown elevated? It looks like there is some type of lower level.

That is the Landmark Office Towers complex, built in 1930 and is the headquarters of Sherwin-Williams until the new tower is completed.

And yes, downtown is elevated above the Cuyahoga River which would be below where that photo was taken.

Thanks for the info ColDayMan!

The Landmark Office Towers Complex. Do you think Sherwin-Williams should have renovated that building or stick with building a new one?

I never knew about downtown Cleveland being elevated. Need to hang out on Google for a while.

These historic photos might help put things into context. Back in the early 1900s when Cleveland's growth was picking up, the main rail station was on the lakefront, west of where Cleveland Browns Stadium is located. It was considered obsolete and too small to accommodate the growing population.



A plan to construct a new station as part of the 1903 Group Plan was developed. This would have been situated at the northernmost point where Mall C overlooks Lake Erie.



At about the same time, the Van Sweringen brothers (the real estate developers behind much of Shaker Heights) proposed a new station and complex adjacent to Public Square. They bought up a huge amount of local railways and a swath of real estate on the southwest quadrant of Public Square. Here's a 'before' aerial photo looking south - note the Hotel Cleveland (tallest building on the right):



And the 'after' - looking northeast. The earthworks related to all of this was the second largest after the Panama Canal - that's how massive this project was. The lone building on the site is the original Ohio Bell (telephone) building; on the right you can see the new (1927) Ohio Bell tower under construction:



The entire street grid was reworked, with Prospect Avenue and Huron Road being constructed as bridges to accommodate the railways underneath. In the newer photo that Steely Dan posted, the beige building on the left is the original Post Office which had chutes that dropped the mail down to waiting trains.

I love the photos and history, but have to dispute the bit about second-largest earthwork. Maybe it works under a narrower definition.

Many cities were building landfills in the hundreds of acres in that era, several in the US totaling in the square miles collectively. Some also removed substantial hills. Seattle's Denny Hill removal was 11 million cy in two phases...the equivalent of 100 acres and 69 feet on average by my calculation.

The building does great things for the skyline.

^Thinking "at that time" would probably be the best way to frame the context. Also, keep in mind the soil below street level is between 200-300 feet of glacial till, and then you're finally getting to bedrock. The Terminal Tower sits on caissons that go down 280 feet

My example was before 1927. It must have excluded regrades.
