Our February building of the month is the RSA Tower, the tallest building in Alabama. The construction for the building began in 2003 and finished 2007. The RSA Battle House Tower, it’s official name, is located in Mobile, Alabama. The building is owned by the Retirement Systems of Alabama. Beyond being the tallest in the state it is also the tallest on the Gulf Coast of the United States outside of Houston.
The building is named for the neighboring Battle House Hotel, which is a part of the tower complex. The Battle House Hotel was restored and renovated as part of the tower project as well.
The tower consists of 25 office floors where various business big and small are held. The building also boasts 3 lobby floors, 4 hotel floors, and 1 service floor, together with 30 elevators and 534,268 square feet of column-free floorspace. On a clear night, the lighted crown is visible from 30 miles away along Mobile Bay.
This building is quite the gem of the Mobile skyline, which is why we’re happy to name it February’s building of the month!
