The State Tower Building is a high-rise building. Completed in 1928, at a cost of $1.5 million, the building remains the highest in Syracuse to date. It has 23 floors and rises 95.4 meters (312 feet) into the air. The building was designed as a large office building with the first 10 floors being large, and the top floors being setback and smaller such that one entity might occupy an entire floor. On the roof of the tenth floor was a deck on which there was a full service restaurant.
The building is made of steel and concrete with a limestone, terra-cotta and brick facade. The architect was Thompson & Churchill. It was renovated in 2003.
