Bank of America Tower (originally Barnett Center) is a skyscraper in the downtown area of Jacksonville, Florida, at the northwest corner of Bay and Laura streets. At 617 ft (188 m), it is the tallest building in Jacksonville, and the eleventh-tallest in Florida (the tallest ten all being in Miami). It was built as the headquarters of Barnett Bank and originally named Barnett Center, but the name was changed in 1996 when Barnett was acquired by NationsBank, which soon merged with Bank of America. The 42-floor structure was designed by German-American architect Helmut Jahn, and is constructed of reinforced concrete.
