Fifth Third Center at One SeaGate is the tallest building in Toledo and Northwest Ohio. It is the tallest building between Chicago and Cleveland, and Cincinnati and Detroit. Until 2006, the building served as the world headquarters for Owens-Illinois.[2] In 2007, Fifth Third Bank moved their Northwest Ohio headquarters to the building.

Building features

Costing $100 million,[1] 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 architects were Abramovitz, Harris & Kingsland.

The building stands Script error: No such module "convert". away from the Water Street riverfront. The tower is 411 feet (125 m) tall with 33 stories, with 29[citation needed] floors of office space and two floors for maintenance. Each floor of the office tower has approximately Script error: No such module "convert"., with Script error: No such module "convert". of total leasable space.[1] The building is made up of over 9,135 tons of steel, supported by 28 caissons, going Script error: No such module "convert". down into the Earth, and over Script error: No such module "convert". of concrete.[3] The exterior of the building is covered in Script error: No such module "convert". 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.

A 294-seat auditorium is located in the tower complex with an executive parking garage immediately below it, and the building itself is connected to the CitiWalk system. Underground, there is a mini-mall, SeaGate Shops at CitiWalk, that was left primarily vacant after the departure of O-I. When the building opened, Edwin Dodd, then O-I's Chairman and CEO, exerted his considerable influence to fill the Promenade level shops with tenants. Damschroeder's and Ricardo's Restaurant were two large tenants who were convinced to move in. The mini-mall has a small eatery area that leads to Promenade Park and Fountain Square, which features the Dimitri Hadzi sculpture, Propylaea. The underground tunnels also connect the building to the Grand Plaza Hotel (formerly a Wyndham, formerly Hotel Sofitel) at Two SeaGate, Four SeaGate (the former home of Fox Toledo joined WTOL in 2012 and relocated to the WTOL studio), a parking structure across Summit Street, and Imagination Station. The top floor accessible to occupants, the 28th, formerly included a fine restaurant that was frequented by business professionals. When the building opened, the 28th floor restaurant was an executive dining room with boardroom and meeting room facilities adjacent, for O-I senior executives whose offices were immediately below on the 27th floor. The 29th floor was exclusively mechanical.[citation needed] On the service level, there are loading docks for the convenience of tenants and the management of the building. The building is owned by One SeaGate Partners, LLC, an affiliate of Amtrust Realty.[4]

"The O-I Building"

Until 2006 the world headquarters for Owens-Illinois were at One Seagate. At that time the headquarters were moved to the Levis Commons complex in the nearby suburb of Perrysburg, Ohio, where the company already owned a large facility. The company stated they were not necessarily hurting the area's economy, as they were moving a short drive south. Fellow glassmaker Owens Corning still keeps its world headquarters in downtown Toledo. Toledoans often refer to One SeaGate as "the O-I building."

Fifth Third Bankcorp

On January 23, 2007, it was announced that the Northwest Ohio offices for Fifth Third Bank would be moving into OneSeaGate.[1] Under the new terms, the building was be renamed: "Fifth Third Center at One SeaGate."[1] Fifth Third signage was be put on the top of the skyscraper, as the company has done with their locations elsewhere. The move lets the company move all of its offices to one location, removing the need for the company's current Monroe Street offices. The company chose not to occupy the top floors, including the prestigious offices of the O-I executives, because renovation would cost too much. Fifth Third rents out floors 4, 21, 22, 23, and parts of the lobby (for a banking center) and the service level for about $20 per square foot,[1] as opposed to the $16 charge at their previous Madison Avenue location, the bank's Northwest Ohio home since 1931.
