One Metropolitan Square, also known as Met Square, is an office skyscraper completed in 1989, located in downtown St. Louis. It is the tallest building in the city and the second tallest building in Missouri behind One Kansas City Place in Kansas City.

Major tenants include architecture firm Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum, which also designed the building, the Bryan Cave law firm, the Evans & Dixon law firm, the Brown & Crouppen law firm, The Driscoll Firm, and P.C. and Kemoll's Restaurant. One of the most interesting features of the building is it's larger than life elevators which feature beautiful gold doors. Check out a video below:

The building was constructed by McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., the largest general contractor in St. Louis. The building is designed in the Neoclassical style and is reminiscent of skyscrapers built in the early 20th century. The facade is made of granite and the building features a copper roof. Open spaces and large windows allow users to see amazing views of downtown St.Louis.
