The Terminal Tower was once the tallest building in Cleveland. Today it is dwarfed by newer buildings, but it's still the most recognizable image on the downtown Cleveland skyline. Sitting on the south end of downtown in the center of Public Square, it is still a popular meeting spot that houses one of the area's biggest department stores, a mall, food court, multiple movie theaters, and, of course, the train station. The 52-story building was constructed in 1930, at the time when skyscrapers were in their infancy. The 42nd floor observation deck offers clear views of most of the Cleveland area and, legend has it, Canada on a clear day.
I grew up in Cleveland Ohio 1951-1976 before moving away with a job transfer.
Then-shopping downtown was elegant ans sophisticated, From Higbee's to Halle's
and more stores were exciting, restaurants abounded with quality. Many major corp. made the Cleveland area home. It was success only surpassed by NYC or London.
It has lost much unfortunately, yet some grand architecture survives, and still a city to be proud of over many wannabe's!.
Tower City is Cleveland's own Grand Central Station, a great place to meet and eat or shop or do just about anything! Nobody should miss Tower City, especially during the holidays. It turns into a magical place!
This place is not at all as great as it sounds!! The mall is nothing what I thought it was going to be and the building isn't that great!! The only cool part was the hard Rock Cafe. It's actually sorta of a dump!! It needs major renovations!! It's deffinitly not worth going to if your only in cleveland for a few days!!
easy to find parking
went July 5th, 2006 and there was alot of construction so couldn't fully enjoy the square or the beautiful statues
Very easy and pleasant downtown walk
not much shopping outside of the mall
It's where I'm from. There's so much to do in Cleveland, especially Down Town @ Tower City! There's plenty of places to shop for EVERYTHING and I do mean everything. Food, Music, Clothing. Whatever you want, Tower City Has it for you.
This is a huge place. The Hard Rock Cafe is there too. There is great shopping and there is a passageway connecting it to the Indian's stadium and Gund Arena so you can chill there right before going to the game!
Terminal Tower, part of the Tower City complex, is one of the largest mixed-use developments in the country. It was also extremely innovative for its time during the first installment as Terminal Tower in 1930, and again during a major expansion as Tower City in 1990. Inside the beautiful complex is abundant office space, hotels, restaurants, a movie theater, shops, a fitness center, a parking garage, World Trade Center Cleveland, and a post office. Indoor corridors connect Tower City to Jacob's Field, the Gund Arena, and the brand new Federal Courthouse. Terminal Tower is also within walking distance to the popular nightlife and dining districts on W. 6th St. or E.4th St. The only thing missing from Tower City is residences, however many people easily commute to the complex by public transportation. As the city's transit hub, all Rapid lines meet here (free transfers) in the lower levels, and over 80% of bus routes throughout the county terminate at the front doors of Terminal Tower at the Public Square main entrance. Visitors can take the Rapid from Terminal Tower out to most of the city's popular destinations, such as Shaker Square, the Flats, Amtrak Station, and North Coast Harbor (Great Lakes Science Center, Brown�s Stadium, and Rock Hall) via Green or Blue lines, or to Hopkins International Airport, the West Side Market, and University Circle (the cultural, educational, and medical district) via Red line. In addition to the importance and convenience of the complex, Terminal Tower was once the tallest building outside of the New York, and served as inspiration for the building popular comic book character Superman could "leap in a single bound".
The inside is gorgeous with beautiful storefronts, fountains, and skylights. It truly is the center of the city and the public transit hub inside on the lower levels is great. Visitor guides and persons are available here in the lobby to get information on all sorts of Cleveland attractions.
