Great American Tower at Queen City Square photo update, 11/3/08

Excavation work is happening at the future site of the Great American Tower at Queen City Square.

Eagle Realty Group/Western & Southern Financial Group is building the $322 million, 41-story tower at the corner of Third and Sycamore streets Downtown.

At buildout, Queen City Square will feature 800,000 square feet of office space, 20,000-25,000 square feet of street-level retail, a pedestrian promenade, an outdoor plaza, and a 1,700-car parking garage on eight above-ground levels and three below-ground.

The tower has been designed to achieve LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, making it one of the first, largest, and tallest such projects in the nation.

The building shell is expected to be completed by December 2010, with tenants arriving in early 2011.
