The Omni Building (also known as the Armour & Co. Building) is a 4-story, 40,000 square foot building located at 2309 1st Avenue North in downtown Birmingham. It was constructed in the late 1890s and has served as a meat-processing facility for Armour & Company in the 1920s and 1930s, and housed Arnold Institutional Foods in the 1960s. It housed the offices of Boise Cascade office supplies in the 1990s. Beginning in 2004 the building was the home of Liesa Cole's Omni Studios.

In 2016 the building was purchased by Christopher Architecture, who partnered with Blue Tongue Development to convert it into 30 apartments above a ground-floor commercial space. Stidco Construction was brought on as general contractor. Construction was delayed until late 2017.
