16 East Broad Street is a building in Columbus, Ohio. Completed in 1901, the building stands at a height of 168 feet (51 m), with 13 floors.[1] It stood as the tallest building in the city until being surpassed by 8 East Broad Street in 1906.[citation needed]

From 1927 to 1939, the eleventh floor of the building served as the office for the National Football League. Joseph F. Carr, a Columbus native, was president of the NFL at the time.[2][3][4][5]
