The Flintridge Building (or Flint Ridge Building) is a large 5-story modern office building developed in 1951 by Galbraith & Company as a divisional headquarters building for the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company, which moved its offices from the Brown Marx Building in downtown Birmingham. It was designed by Jack B. Smith of the Chicago, Illinois firm of Holabird, Root & Burgee.
The site, on E. J. Oliver Boulevard at Bermans Way, overlooks Fairfield Works from a ridge opposite I-20/59 in Fairfield. The central portion of the buff-brick building has glass-enclosed projections styled like "pressboxes" with a view of the works.
U. S. Steel, which had controlled TCI since 1907, consolidated its administrative functions in Pittsburgh in 1964, leaving a number of local offices in the building. In 2006 the company built an 11,000 square foot maintenance training center there.
