About One SeaGate
Fifth Third Center at One SeaGate is the tallest building in Toledo, Ohio. Until 2006, the building served as the world headquarters for Owens-Illinois. In 2007, Fifth Third Bank moved their Northwest Ohio headquarters to the building. Costing $100 million, One SeaGate was built as the centerpiece of the SeaGate project in downtown Toledo. Groundbreaking took place in May 1979, and was officially dedicated in June 1982. The building stands 432 feet (132 m) away from the Water Street riverfront. The tower is 411 feet (125 m) tall with 32 stories, with 29 floors of office space and two floors for maintenance. Each floor of the office tower has approximately 25,000 square feet (2,320 m), with 707,000 square feet (65,700 m) of total leasable space. The building is made up of over 9,135 tons of steel, supported by 28 caissons, going 80 feet (24 m) down into the Earth, and over 36,000 cubic yards (28,000 m) of concrete. The exterior of the building is covered in 293,000 square feet (27,200 m) of glass, with 4,400 vision panels and 4,200 spandrel units between floors, representing Toledo's history as the "Glass City," and O-I's presence in the glass industry.
