The Ernst & Young Tower (EYTC) is a skyscraper in downtown Cleveland, Ohio that stands on the east bank of the Flats completed in 2013. It is an example of post-modern glass curtain and steel studded construction. The building rises 23 stories to a height of 330 feet (100 m) and offers 480,000 square feet (45,000 m2) of office space. The major tenant is the London-based accounting firm of Ernst & Young which moved from its offices in the iconic Huntington Bank Building at East 9th Street and Euclid Avenue (Cleveland) to its new namesake tower in 2013. Ernst & Ernst was established in 1903 in Cleveland. Young & Co. was founded in Chicago in 1906. These two giant accounting firms merged in 1989 to create Ernst & Young, which still dominates the field.


The building is also the Cleveland office of these law firms: Cleveland-based Tucker Ellis, Zashin & Rich, and Columbus, Ohio-based Porter Wright Morris Arthur. In addition to these major tenants the tower is home to the Cleveland-based metal chemical company OM Group, and is the Cleveland office of San Francisco-based financial corporation Wells Fargo The EYTC is attached to an Aloft Hotels-branded hotel. The hotel has a 150 guest rooms and the W XYZ bar.
