The Commercial Building in Alexandria, Virginia, home of the Commercial Bank and Trust Company after it was built in 1915, is a historic commercial building located at the corner of Third Street and Johnston Street. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
It was deemed notable as "a good representative example of the early phase of the American 'skyscraper' which was developed in Chicago in the 1880's. The Commercial Building is the only such example in Alexandria" and one of only four in the northern part of Louisiana.
