Facts

  • This is the tallest building to have been demolished in Ohio.
  • This third, and shortest, tower in the Carew-Netherland Complex was a parking garage.
  • Cars driven in at the lower level were transported to parking spots high in the tower by an automated system of elevators.
  • The narrow tower stood on an east-west axis just south of the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, and was accessible from Race Street, midway between 4th and 5th Streets.
  • This was one of the tallest buildings in the world devoted almost exclusively to automobile parking.
  • The garage was already underused by the late 1950s and the building's owner considered reconfiguring the structure into apartments, but this was never undertaken.
  • An innovative part of the project, the garage tower operated until 1979 before being demolished in the late 1980s. The Tower Place Mall, fully integrated with the remaining towers, now takes its place.
  • The same architect designed two similar, albeit shorter, structures in Chicago: the Harrison Hotel Electric Garage and the Quincy Street Garage.
  • The arcade portion of the Hotel Emery & Arcade was demolished to make way for this building.
