The tower is named after Carl Stokes, the 51st mayor of Cleveland and the first African American mayor of a major city. Construction began in 1999 and was completed in 2002.

Tenants include the Cleveland-based federal circuit, district, and magistrate judges, the Clerk of Court for the Northern District of Ohio, the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services Office, the offices of the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, the U.S. Marshal's Office, and the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division's Cleveland Field Office, as well as the U.S. Immigration Court.
