The Zinszer Building is a four-story commercial building with a Victorian cast-iron facade located at 2115-2117 2nd Avenue North in downtown Birmingham. It was constructed in 1889 by Peter Zinszer for his "Peter Zinszer's Mammoth Furniture House" retail business. After his death in 1894 the business passed to his widow, Rosa, who operated it for another decade.
The 30,497 square-foot building continued to serve as a furniture showroom through the 1970s, most recently as Beard Furniture. It presently houses the offices of the Spain & Gillon law firm. Arlington Properties had its offices there from 1987 to 2018.
The building was put on the market in April 2017 for $3.4 million.
