Over 2,250 spaces are provided in the 11-level Queen City Square Garage that serves both Great American Tower and 303 Broadway. The garage is located below the office buildings and extends north to Fourth Street. A total of 9 elevators in three separate elevator banks serve the parking garage.

The garage features entrances and exits on all four streets bordering the Queen City Square block, and these entrances directly serve three different levels of the garage (due to the slope of the site). This design provides for optimum convenience for parkers and minimizes backups when entering or exiting.

In addition to the on-site garage, numerous less expensive parking options exist in close proximity to the building.


Queen City Square features a world-class promenade with wi-fi, seating areas, a fountain with a variety of water scenarios, and elegant materials. The project also includes a high-quality fitness center for building tenants, plus additional locker rooms and showers for bicyclists and mid-day runners; 24-hour on-site Security; car wash services; secured bicycle parking; multiple ATMs; overnight delivery drop boxes and more. On-site retail offerings include multiple dining options at various price points (including Simply Grand Cafe, Wild Eggs, Kidd Coffee and Restaurant L) plus PNC Bank and The Market at Queen City Square. Numerous retail stores, restaurants, private clubs, shops, hotels and parks are located within close proximity to the building. Drycleaning dropoff/pickup services are an additional amenity.

Rotunda & Promenade

A grand rotunda produces a prestigious presence at the project's Fourth Street entrance. Its high glass walls and unique indoor-outdoor ambiance creates an inviting transitional space into the equally impressive promenade.

The spacious promenade features a central fountain, rich woods, sparkling white marble, inspiring artwork, and plentiful natural light from the west-facing floor-to-ceiling windows. The promenade connects to the office building lobby and also to Third Street via escalators and the Third Street lobby.

Office Elevators

23 richly appointed elevators serve the office floors. The Tower also features an advanced "destination dispatch" system plus "smart" elevator technology minimize elevator travel times for occupants and visitors.

Service Elevators

A total of three freight elevators serve the complex.

Access Control

The complex is staffed 24 hours per day and the office elevators are strategically separated from the garage elevators to enhance access control to the office floors. Cameras are installed to observe all perimeter entries to the both the building and the garage, as well as critical locations of the building.

During the workday, all users must pass the staffed lobby desks, discouraging unwanted visitors from entering the office buildings. After normal building hours, an access control system regulates entry to the building and use of the elevators.

Full floor tenants have the option to have the elevators programmed to require access cards at all or certain hours.

Ceiling Height

Office floors feature extra-high 9'-6" clear height from floor to finished ceiling.

Space Efficiency

Use of space is greatly enhanced by the absence of freestanding columns on the office floors.
