ABOUT THIS BUILDING
Built in 1907 as the Keenan Building, it was the first skyscraper on Liberty Avenue for newspaperman Colonel Thomas J. Keenan, known as the Keenan Building. The Italianate style was originally capped by a gold dome, but has since been painted red. 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.
