Carl B. Stokes Federal Courthouse

The 23-story building was the first major project in Cleveland to use metric measurement throughout the construction process. The entire 55,000-ton weight of the building rests on a seven-foot-thick concrete mat that required a pour of more than 1,000 truckloads of cement. Groundbreaking was on May 28, 1997, making it the first federal courthouse to be built in Cleveland in 88 years. It opened for business in 1999.
