The Wells Fargo Tower is a 34 story, 454 foot (138 meter) tall office building located in Birmingham, Alabama. Built in 1986 as the corporate headquarters for SouthTrust Corporation, the building was originally known as the SouthTrust Tower until 2005 when SouthTrust completed its merger with Wachovia and was known as the Wachovia Tower. It became the Wells Fargo Tower in September 2010 when Wells Fargo completed its purchase of Wachovia and a new logo was placed atop the building.

The building was developed by Johnston-Rast & Hays and designed by architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Giattina, Fisher & Aycock. Brice Building Company served as the contractor for the project. Upon completion it displaced the RSA–BankTrust Building in Mobile as the tallest building in Alabama. It held that distinction until 2006, when it was surpassed by the RSA Battle House Tower in Mobile.

Today, the building serves as a regional headquarters for Wells Fargo, who is the second largest tenant, the largest being law firm Burr & Forman. It is also home to the Birmingham office of Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz.
