Fiberglas Tower[2] is a skyscraper located at 200 North Saint Clair Street in Toledo, Ohio. Constructed in 1969, the building rises to a height of 400 feet (120 m). Until 1996, the tower served as the world headquarters for Owens Corning, when the company moved to a different location within Downtown Toledo along the Maumee River.[2][3]

The unusual spelling of its name (Fiberglas instead of Fiberglass) comes from Owens-Corning's use of Fiberglas as the trademark name of its glass fiber products, as the generic name fiberglass couldn't be restricted to use as a trademark.

In 2012, the Fiberglas Tower was listed on the National Register of Historic Places under the name of "Riverview".[1] As of November 2014, the building is currently vacant.
