2121 1st Avenue North is a two-story, 13,500 square-foot brick commercial building located at 2121-2123 1st Avenue North in downtown Birmingham. A parking lot is located to the rear of the building, facing Morris Avenue. The date of construction is uncertain, but has been given as 1924 in real estate listings.

In 1926 the ground floor was split between Temerson Bros. on the west and Silverstein Bros. ladies wear on the east. Three years later, the Blumburg Dry Goods Co. had taken over the Temerson Bros. space.

In 1964 the Gem Jewelry Co. wholesale jewelers was on the east and Magnolia Diamonds in the western half of the space.

Christy Opara opened her Body & Soul Fitness studio in the building in 2005.

Office tenants have included Cummings Creative Group, Black Design Architecture, Luca, Hennecy Design, the Matuszak Group, My Advisors Inc., and Occidental Benefits. Building manager Harbert Retail also operates part of the building as Downtown Storage.
