The Shipt Tower business center offers the perfect setting for elevating your business profile in the heart of downtown Birmingham. It is located in a 34-story A-class office tower which is the city's tallest building and has been a landmark on its skyline since 1986. The interior of this refurbished building has exquisite marble and mahogany accents and there is some retail space at ground level. Birmingham is the largest city in the state of Alabama and was once the primary industrial center of the southern United States. At the height of the manufacturing age its population grew so fast that it was called the "Magic City." Today, Birmingham still ranks as one of the most important business centers in the Southeastern United States and is one of the nation's largest banking centers. The city is home to over 40,000 businesses with particular strengths in medical research and service-based sectors.
