The Chamber of Commerce Building is a historic office building located at Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is a Renaissance Revival-style red brick building five floors in height, eleven bays long and three bays wide, and built 1904-05. It was built during the rebuilding of the financial area in Baltimore following the Great Fire of 1904 and features many terra cotta decorative elements. The rebuilt structure was designed by Baltimore architect Charles E. Cassell. The original pre-fire building was designed by John Rudolph Niernsee in 1880 and was used by the Corn and Flour Exchange, which maintained a trading floor on the fifth level.
