The Galleria Tower is a 17-story, 250-foot-tall office tower built as part of the Riverchase Galleria shopping mall complex, which also includes the 15-story Wynfrey Hotel. Completed in 1986 the 285,000 square-foot office tower is the tallest building in Hoover. It was designed by Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum of Kansas City, Missouri and constructed by the Harbert Corporation for Jim Wilson & Associates.
The tower's base connects to the mall's central atrium with its main lobby on the 3rd floor of the shopping center. A circular ramped driveway on the southwest side provides drop-off vehicular access to the lobby as well as connections to the parking decks.
Major tenants in the tower have included Caremark Rx (formerly MedPartners), Surgical Care Affiliates, Graham & Associates, and, since 2010, Walter Energy. Former tenants include St Vincent's Health System.
