Stelco Tower is the second tallest building in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The 26-storey structure (103 metres/338 feet) was completed in 1973. Originally known as Stelco Tower and now officially known as the 100 King Street West building, many Hamiltonians still refer to it as the Stelco Tower.
The tower was built as the head office of Stelco, Canada's largest steel producer and one of Hamilton's largest employers. The company used the tower to demonstrate the versatility of steel and to showcase its newest development, "Stelcoloy"; a specialised steel alloy designed to slowly rust over time. The rust helps protect the steel from further damage. This process of oxidation accounts for the steel's unique self-colouring nature; the steel was grey-blue when the building was first erected.
