White Station Tower is 22-story, 274-foot-tall high-rise office building in Memphis, Tennessee. It is located at 5050 Poplar Avenue (located near White Station Road). Built in 1965, it was one of the first skyscrapers built away from the downtown skyline, about 15 miles away. When constructed, the top of the building was utilized as a revolving restaurant. However, now it is just used as office space. Memphis-based Independent Bank (or i-Bank) is headquartered in the building and its logo is illuminated on the top of the building (installed in the 2000s), replacing an old sign for Union Planters Bank. (A similar logo was installed on the top of the One Commerce Square building downtown in June 2012 when a branch of the bank was opened there.)
