Cleveland easily. Does Cincy even have a building over 25 stories?

Heck, Dayton even has buildings over 25 stories, the Kettering tower, at 30, and the Mead tower, at 28. The Carew tower is Cincy's largest, at 48 stories (I think?), and it was built in the Depression era, when Cincy was considered a major city on the scale of Philidelphia or St. Louis (which stagnated along with Cincy, as well). There are also probably about 6-12 other buildings over 25 stories scattered throughout the city. However, with QCS going up (if it is still going up with this suckish economy), the tallest building in town will soon be second tallest.

My hope (although I know that you probably don't care from your comment) is that this and other developments, along with the Daytonnati metropolitan area becoming 15th largest in the 2010 census when it is recognized as its own metro area, will create a more successful center city for both major cities, and put both cities in a respected position in the national spotlightdue to its size. Best wishes to Cleveland, too.

QCS is UC as we speak! ... and the 25 stories comment was priceless! In a bad way.

I agree, Hillside ... amazing pic. No doubt Dayton has the 4th best skyline in OH, hands down.
