Great American Tower Photo Update

Great American Tower will soon become Cincinnati’s tallest high rise building at close to 700 feet in height. The building has officially been topped out, but is still awaiting its grand crown that will push the tower over Cincinnati’s historical tallest building – Carew Tower. These recent photos (click to open larger versions in new window) taken by Jake Mecklenborg show the progress and prowess of Great American Tower.
