Built in 1907 as the Keenan Building, it was the first skyscraper on Liberty Ave for newspaperman Colonel Thomas J. Keenan, know as the Keenan Building. The Italianate style, was originally capped by a gold dome. The building changed hands repeatedly over the years but stayed an office tower until 1971, when it was converted into federally subsidized housing and renamed Midtown Towers.
