Not only is Boji Tower the tallest building in Lansing, the clock is the 8th-largest clock in the United States.  The historic 23-story building, located near the State capital in Lansing, Michigan, is also known as the Olds Tower.  It was built in 1929 by Ransom E. Olds, an automotive industry pioneer whose company developed, manufactured, and sold one of the first affordable cars in mass production in the US.
