This is a list of the tallest buildings in Birmingham, England. They are separated into groups of usage.

Highrise development in Birmingham was most active during the post-war development phase of the 1960s in which many box-shaped towers were constructed out of concrete and this also included a large amount of tower blocks housing flats. These towers are now either being demolished or being renovated like The Rotunda on New Street. Highrise development slowed during the 1980s and early 1990s however is increasing once again with the recent completions of Holloway Circus Tower and the Orion Building and many proposed projects in development areas such as the Eastside. Many of these new highrises contain residential properties which are promoting city living.
