Worcester Plaza (formerly known as Worcester County National Bank Tower) is a building located in downtown Worcester, Massachusetts at 446 Main Street. Designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates, it was completed in 1974, and is currently tied with Sky Mark Tower as the tallest building in Worcester. It stands 289 feet (88 m) tall, is 24 stories high, and has 244,000 square feet (22,700 m2) of total floor space. Its façade is completely glass, similar to the 790-foot (240 m) John Hancock Tower in nearby Boston.
The current building was built instead of a larger, more iconic design announced in 1969 that was never realized. The original design was a 696 feet (212 m) tall, 50 story, slender tower with an angled crown and would have been the "highest standing commercial building in New England.
