In 1876  Syracuse Savings Bank completed the tallest structure in the history of Syracuse. With a tower rising 170 feet, it was the first office building in the city to be built with a passenger elevator.  For years visitors rode to the top of the tower to enjoy the view over the city.

Built adjacent to the Erie Canal.

Bought in 2007 by the Bank of America.
