Tower at 1301 Gervais is a high-rise building in Columbia, South Carolina, and the tallest building in the city not located along the Main Street corridor. Built in 1973, the tower has dark glazing with anodized aluminum columns to give it a dark, uniform-colored appearance. The top floor of the tower holds a private club with views of the city. It was originally constructed for Bankers Trust as their headquarters. It was the tallest building in the city at its completion until the Palmetto Center was topped out on January 23, 1983.
