Descripción:Built in 1990 near Monument Circle in Indianapolis, the Chase Tower (formerly known as the First National Bank Tower and Bank One Tower) is the tallest skyscraper in Indiana. The building's twin spires pierce 830 feet (253 m) into the Hoosier skyline, while the 48 floors of office and retail space below peak at the 700 feet (214 m) roof. It is the headquarters for Chase's (formerly Bank One) Indiana operations. It is worth noting that, while the building has two spires of equal height, only one of the spires is actually functional as a transmission mast. The other mast is merely an architectural decoration.
The tower reflects the design of the Indiana War Memorial, three blocks due north. The War Memorial, in turn, reflects the descriptions of the original Mausoleum.
-The Chase Tower is the tallest building in Indiana, and the tallest in the Midwest outside Chicago and Cleveland.
-American Fletcher National Bank was to be headquartered in this building, but merged with Bank One before the completion of construction. The name reverted to Chase Tower in late 2005, after Bank One was purchased by JP Morgan Chase & Company.
-One of the spires functions as a communications antenna, while the other is simply decorative.
-Former site of the Hume-Mansur Building, demolished in 1980, and two lowrise buildings, the Board of Trade Building and Bankers Trust Building.
