About National City Tower
National City Tower is a skyscraper in Downtown, Louisville, Kentucky, United States, and located at 101 South Fifth Street. The 40-story, 512-foot (156 m) high structure was designed by architects Wallace Harrison and Max Abramovitz and was completed in 1972. The building, originally named First National Tower, was named after First National Bank and renamed National City Tower when First National was acquired by National City Bank. National City Tower was the tallest building in the state of Kentucky from 1972 until the AEGON Center was completed in 1993. In February 2010, the National City logos on east and west sides of the tower were replaced with PNC Bank logos, due to PNC's takeover of National City. However, as of February 2010, the name of the building remains unchanged.
