The Keith Building is a skyscraper in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. At the time of its construction in 1922, it was the tallest building in Cleveland,[4] and currently stands as the 23rd-tallest. Owner Edward Albee II named it in memory of B. F. Keith, his former business partner.[4] The Keith Building houses the Palace Theater, Playhouse Square Center's second-largest theater, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[citation needed]
