On November 17, 2004 Toledo Blade reported, "the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo - the Middle Eastern-style mosque prominently located at the juncture of I-475 and I-75 in Perrysburg Township - got a new look yesterday when it was capped with a golden, 30-foot-high geodesic dome. The 18,000-pound aluminum dome, built by the California-based firm Temcor at a cost of about $300,000, was hoisted by crane yesterday morning and placed atop the mosque's white dome. The old dome, which has been on top of the building since its 1983 construction, was made of plaster, concrete, and Styrofoam."
