Royal Centre, also known as RBC Tower or Royal Bank Tower, is a skyscraper complex located at 1055 West Georgia Street in Downtown Vancouver's Financial District. The skyscraper stands at just under 145m tall and 37 storeys. Royal Centre was the tallest building in Vancouver upon completion in 1973 and remained so until it was overtaken by Harbour Centre in 1977.

The primary tenant of the complex is RBC's British Columbia headquarters. The building was owned and managed by Brookfield Properties, a major North American commercial real estate company, until its sale over the 2016-2017 period.[2]
