The Birmingham Realty Company building is a two-story Beaux-Arts styled brick and terra-cotta building located at 2118 1st Avenue North in downtown Birmingham. It was constructed in 1905 as offices for the Birmingham Realty Company. Architect William Weston designed the facade around a single large arch crowned by a terra-cotta sculpture of a woman's head. The interior features a large stained-glass skylight over an open atrium space with teller cages. At the rear of the 25-foot by 100-foot building is a square courtyard garden.
