The AEP Building is a 456 ft (139m) tall skyscraper located at One Riverside Plaza in Columbus, Ohio. It was completed in 1983 and has 31 floors. Abramovitz, Harris & Kingsland designed the building following a modernist architectural style. The AEP Building is the 8th tallest building in Columbus. It has served as the headquarters of the American Electric Power (AEP) since they relocated from New York City in 1983.

At the front of the building are two sculptures created by George Greenamyer. The turbine rotors came from the former Philo Power Plant in Philo, Ohio and the Twin Branch Power Plant in Mishawaka, Indiana.[2]
