About Bank of America Tower
The Bank of America Tower is a 617 ft (188 m) skyscraper in Downtown Jacksonville, Florida, United States. It is currently the 9th tallest building in the state of Florida, (the tallest 8 being in Miami). It was built as the headquarters of Barnett Bank and originally named Barnett Tower, but the name was changed in 1997 when Barnett was acquired by NationsBank, which soon merged with BankAmerica.

The 42 floor structure was designed by German-American architect Helmut Jahn, and is constructed of reinforced concrete.
