When you approach downtown Cincinnati, the tallest building in your sights is the Great American Tower at Queen City Square. If you happen to be a fan of the television program, Harry’s Law, you will find this building quite familiar. It can be seen each week during the opening title sequence. It is unmistakable due to the Princess Diana tiara inspired design feature at the top of the building – the work of architect Gyo Obata.
Built by Western & Southern Financial Group, the Great American Tower at Queen City Square opened in January of 2011 at a cost of $322 million. It is currently the third tallest building in the state of Ohio. Since Cincinnati is nicknamed the “Queen City,” the tiara design is an appropriate design detail and the “crown” of the building.
Eggers was honored to provide the majority of the 5,000+ doors in the building. All of the doors on the shell of the building are either 8 or 9 foot plain-sliced Cherry flush wood doors and Eggers also provided full glass doors in wooden side lite frames as shown in the picture to the right.
Exquisitely designed oversize 6 foot wide sliders are used as room dividers in a conference room and sliders with custom kerf faces that align perfectly with the wall paneling can also be found in the same conference room.
This building has a wide array of doors which also include Walnut flush wood doors with specified flitch faces to stile and rail doors with figured Makore or paint grade faces on the executive floors.
It is truly a royal building with elegant wood doors to match.
