List of tallest buildings in Cleveland
Skyline of Cleveland

This list of tallest buildings in Cleveland ranks skyscrapers in the U.S. city of Cleveland, Ohio by height. The tallest building in Cleveland is the 57-story Key Tower, which rises 948 feet (289 m) on Cleveland's Public Square.[1] It is the tallest building in the state of Ohio and the 18th-tallest building in the United States. The Terminal Tower stands as the second tallest building in the city and the state.[2]

The history of skyscrapers in Cleveland began in 1889 with the construction of the Society for Savings Building, often regarded as the first skyscraper in the city.[3] Cleveland went through an early building boom in the late 1920s and early 1930s, during which several high-rise buildings, including the Terminal Tower, were constructed. The city experienced a second, much larger building boom that lasted from the early 1970s to early 1990s, during which time it saw the construction of over 15 skyscrapers, including the Key Tower and the BP Tower. Cleveland is the site of four skyscrapers that rise at least 492 feet (150 m) in height. Overall, the skyline of Cleveland is ranked (based upon existing and under construction buildings over 492 feet (150 m) tall) 5th in the Midwestern United States (after Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit and Columbus) and 20th in the United States, after New York City, Chicago, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, San Francisco, Boston, Las Vegas, Seattle, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Jersey City, Minneapolis, Detroit, Denver, Charlotte and Columbus.[A]

Unlike many other major American cities, Cleveland has been the site of relatively few skyscraper construction projects in recent years. The most recently completed skyscraper in the city is the Carl B. Stokes Federal Court House Building, which was constructed in 2003 and rises 430 feet (131 m).[4] As of June 2008, there are nine high-rise buildings proposed for construction in the city; none are approved or under construction.[5]
