1. One SeaGate
Our tour begins in the former board room of Owens-Illinois on the 28th floor of One SeaGate along the mighty Maumee River.
One SeaGate was built as the centerpiece of the SeaGate project in downtown Toledo. Groundbreaking took place in May 1979, and the building was officially dedicated in June 1982. The tower is 411 feet tall with 32 stories; 29 floors of office space and two floors for maintenance. One SeaGate is made up of over 9,135 tons of steel, supported by 28 caissons, going 80 feet down into the Earth. Now known as Fifth Third Center at One SeaGate, the building is the tallest in Toledo and Northwest Ohio and the tallest building between Chicago and Cleveland, as well as Cincinnati and Detroit. Until 2006, One SeaGate served as the world headquarters for Owens-Illinois. Today it is the Northwest Ohio headquarters of Fifth Third Bank. CLICK HERE to see how the SeaGate plan progressed...
