23 People’s United Bank Building on Congress Street in Portland, Maine

When the 11th floor of the Fidelity Trust Company Building was finished in 1910, its height of 135 feet qualified as Portland’s tallest. It also was higher than any structure north of Boston. Especially attractive are the architectural motifs displayed on the Beaux-Arts façade clad in Bedford Indiana limestone. This high-rise has always been home to a bank tenant. But the name keeps changing each time a different institution moves in. The current moniker is People’s United Bank Building.
