The Birmingham Trust building, c. 1929

The Birmingham Trust building at 112 20th Street North was the second home of the Birmingham Trust & Savings Company, replacing a 20-year-old structure on the same site.

The 70,000 square-foot office building was designed by the firm of Miller, Martin & Lewis Architects in a neo-classical style with white Georgia marble cladding on the exterior.

Wachovia Bank, which purchased SouthTrust, the successor to Birmingham Trust, maintained the building's banking office until April 2006, after which the building was left vacant. It was purchased in May 2008 by developer George Ladd who plans to recruit office tenants to the space.
