Bank of America Plaza is a 365 feet (111 m), 23-story[1] office building located at Las Olas City Centre in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The structure was finished in early 2003, and contains a parking garage which is located on the second to sixth floors, a small retail mall, and a Bank of America—the building's namesake tenant—on the ground floor.[2] It currently stands as the fifth tallest building in Ft. Lauderdale.

The rest of the building however is strictly off-limits to the public, with the exception of employees and company clients. These individuals must maintain an ID card in order to access the building's elevators.[3]

The tower's pyramidal top, which resembles the Miami-Dade County Courthouse's, rises 42 ft, and is the signature portion of the building. It is illuminated at night, which gives it a prominent place in the city's skyline.
