Columbus has a rich history of architecturally significant structures, with some dating back to the late 19th Century. The New Hayden is considered the city’s first high-rise. Other notable buildings that were constructed around the same period include the Wheeler, Wyandotte and Capitol Trust. In 1927, the LeVeque Tower was completed and was the tallest building in Columbus for over four decades. At the onset of the Great Depression, high-rise construction in the city slowed, not starting up again in earnest until 1960. This second era of the building boom would last until 1991. Today Columbus has five skyscrapers that are at least 492 feet tall.
