Terminal Tower, Cleveland, 1928
772 feet/235 meters
52 floors

Despite not officially opening until 1930, Terminal Tower was completed in 1928. At the time it was the second tallest building in the world, only 20 feet shorter than the Woolworth Building in Lower Manhattan. Terminal Tower remained the tallest building in the world outside of New York City until 1969 when it was surpassed by Chase Tower and John Hancock Center, both in Chicago.

It also has a public observatory on the 42nd floor.

According to Emporis, the Terminal Tower's architectural height is 708 feet tall (is the flagpole excluded?), while the main building of the Moscow State University is 787 feet tall. The Skyscraper Center also reports that the Terminal Tower's height is 708 feet, but says the main building of the Moscow State University is 784 feet tall. Either way, the latter is taller.
