This list of tallest buildings in Columbus ranks skyscrapers and high-rises in the U.S. city of Columbus, Ohio, by height. The tallest building in the city is the 41-story Rhodes State Office Tower, which rises 629 feet (192 m) and was completed in 1973.[1] The structure is the fifth-tallest completed building in the state,[2] and is also Ohio's tallest building that rises in the center of a city block.[1] The city's second-tallest structure is the LeVeque Tower; this 1927 Art Deco skyscraper was the first building in the state to be built on caisson foundations.[3] Of the 20 tallest buildings in Ohio, nine are located in Columbus.[4]

The history of skyscrapers in Columbus began with the completion in 1900 of 16 East Broad Street, which is regarded as the first high-rise in the city.[5][6] This structure stands 13 stories and 180 feet (55 m) in height.[5] Columbus went through an early high-rise construction boom in the 1920s, during which time the city saw the completion of the 555-foot (169 m) LeVeque Tower, which stood as the tallest structure in Columbus for 46 years. However, the pace of new high-rise construction then remained slow until 1960; starting in that year, Columbus entered into a large building boom that lasted until 1991. During that time, most of the city's tallest skyscrapers were built, including the Rhodes State Office Tower and the William Green Building.[1][7] Although no Columbus skyscraper ranks among the tallest in the United States, the city is the site of five skyscrapers at least 492 feet (150 m) high. Based on existing and under-construction buildings over 500 feet (152 m) tall, the skyline of Columbus is ranked first in Ohio, fourth in the Midwest (after Chicago, Minneapolis, and Detroit) and 19th in the country.[A] As of June 2008, there are 80 completed high-rises in the city.[8] Columbus ranks third in the state in high-rise count after Cleveland and Cincinnati, which have 124 and 120 completed high-rises respectively.[9][10]

Columbus saw very little high-rise construction between 1991 and 2010, with the completion of Fifth Third Center in 1998 and only four other skyscrapers ranking in city's 20 tallest buildings being constructed, the tallest of which is the 314-foot (96 m) Miranova Condominiums (2002),[11] and the 20-story The Condominiums at North Bank Park in 2007.[12]

2011 onward has seen significant high rise development in the downtown and close-in neighborhoods, including the 250 High Building, the Hilton Downtown Columbus/Convention Center, the new Columbia Gas Building in the Arena District, and the Le Meridian Hotel at the Joseph in The Short North. As of 2017, there are numerous new high-rise buildings planned and under construction in the downtown area.[13]

Tallest buildings

This list ranks Columbus skyscrapers that stand at least 150 feet (46 m) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed.
