CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Crews working on the Great American Tower at Queen City Square completed the steel skeleton of the tower on Tuesday.

The final steel beam was lifted to the top of the tower just after 11 a.m. It marks the completion of the structural steel construction that forms the skeleton of the building. Installation will soon begin on the tiara, or top of the tower.

When finished, the tower will reach 665 feet and be Cincinnati's tallest building.

Great American Tower at Queen City Square is the second phase of an office, retail and parking complex and will feature 800,000 square feet and 33 levels of office space above an 11-level parking garage.
