In December 1963, Columbus Center -- at the northeast corner of Broad and Third streets -- observed its first Christmas with a specially constructed entertainment building and a series of twice-daily carol programs.
The Columbus Dispatch reported that the little building would be razed after the holiday season for excavation of the 25-story office building.
On the same newspaper page was a large ad for City National Bank and Trust Co., which was excited to be the principal tenant in the Columbus Center when it opened in 1964.
The new high-rise building was hailed in the ad as a "Symbol of an Exciting Future."
The multitenant office building was renovated in 2002.
The main tenant today is Chase Bank.
