Here's some info I found comparing the current to the new future tower

 

Current Cleveland Hopkins Air Traffic Control Tower:

  • Approximately 198 feet to the top of the tower’s roof.
  • Tower cab floor size: 605 square feet.
  • Commissioning Date: 1988 for tower, 1987 for TRACON.
  •  Current Cleveland facility has eight controller work stations in the tower and 15 stations in the TRACON.
Features of the New Tower and Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON):

  • Approximately 324 feet to the top of the tower’s roof.
  • A tower cab floor area of approximately 867 square feet.         
  • Tower cab will feature eight controller work stations.
  • A TRACON floor area of 55,592 square feet.
  • TRACON will accommodate up to 22 controller work stations.
  • Total projected cost, including design, construction, and equipment, is approximately $69 million in federal funding.

324 feet? Wow. That's pretty tall, it seems.

^Yeah, that's like 32 stories--very tall!

 

Will the tower replace TRACON at YNG, CAK, and TOL. Does BKL have TRACON as well, and if so, would this be consolidated at CLE as well?

CLE TRACON covers burke, county and lorain already.  As far as other TRACONS, I don't have any for sure answers, but I have heard rumor that the new CLE will take over YNG, CAK and MFD TRACONS.  have not heard about TOL, but my guess is that would go to DTW if it was consolidated.

Wouldn't mind seeing a photo update on the tower now and then, the out-of-towner said.  Cool

I may have a few on my camera now - I'll take a look and post if they're any good.
