Grandview Plaza is a 200,000 square-foot Class A office building located in the Cahaba Center at Grandview on U. S. Highway 280.

The building, built in 1997 as the headquarters for HealthSouth, originally featured a private elevator for executives, a trophy room for then-CEO Richard Scrushy's awards and souvenirs, and a company store. The architect for the project was Birmingham's CLJ Associates, Inc, though Scrushy himself was actively involved in the design.

The 5-building campus was sold in March 2008 to Daniel Corporation. HealthSouth entered into a long-term contract to remain the major tenant in the building. Daniel moved their corporate headquarters into the building, and also signed the Education Corporation of America to a lease in the building.

HealthSouth, which rebranded as Encompass Health, moved to a new headquarters building at Liberty Park in 2018. The Grandview Plaza building, along with a nearby parking deck and warehouse building, were purchased by the Church of the Highlands in early 2020 to serve as future expansion space for its "Highlands College" program in the former Cahaba Center at Grandview conference center.
