Created in 2002 by Tower Pinkster Titus.

Located in front of the Kent Country Courthouse.

The Clock Tower rests on the former Grand Rapids City Hall site (1888-1969), and contains one of the four faces from the old City Hall clock. Aiming for an "ethereal quality", the architects let the clock face appear to float away from the corner poles, and the cables winding around the poles provide a "temporary" symbolic quality.
