Bank of America Plaza is an office building located in the West Loop area of Chicago, Illinois, United States. The building was built for ABN AMRO, parent company of Chicago financial institution LaSalle Bank. To the east sits Citicorp Center building and to the south, residential-complex of Presidential Towers. In the base of the building, there is a LaSalle Bank branch, a Starbucks Coffee and an Au Bon Pain restaurant.

The building is anchored by West Madison Street, West Washington Street, North Jefferson Street and North Clinton streets. It was completed in 2003. The building has a total of 29 floors that span 453 feet. Cost are estimated to have been near $387 million (US). It took approximately 3 years to erect. The goal was to bring together all office workers in Chicago who comprised the staff of the five buildings the company occupied previous to the construction of the Plaza.

The building is now owned by Bank of America. Ownership was transferred when BofA purchased LaSalle Bank from ABN AMRO. The icon green and yellow shield was removed in the spring of 2008 from the building's top.
