Facts

  • Construction of this building caused great controversy because of its "extreme height.".
  • Citizens petitioned to State Legislature to set a building height limitation of 125', the same height as the steeple of the nearby Old First Church.
  • This law restricted Springfield's skyline until 1970, with construction of the Baystate West (Tower Square) office building.
