The Rivergate Tower is a 454 ft (138m) tall skyscraper in Tampa, Florida. With 31 floors, it is the sixth tallest building in Tampa. Rivergate Tower's principal tenant is Sykes Enterprises, a publicly traded company that operates technical help and customer support centers internationally. The building was constructed in 1988 as headquarters for NCNB, a predecessor to Nations Bank. It cost $150 million. Parking is provided in a two-story sub level structure with a total of 731 spaces. The building was constructed from 1986 to 1988. Harry Wolf (architect) based its measurements on the Fibonacci series.[2] in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. His design for Rivergate Tower was given the 1993 National Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects. The building is faced in French and Texas limestone, making it one of the tallest limestone structures in the world.[] The distinctive cylindrical shape was meant to symbolize a lighthouse and represent optimism.[] The building was purchased by In-Rel Properties in 2011. On April 18, 2012, the American Institute of Architects's Florida Chapter placed the Rivergate Tower on its list of Florida Architecture: 100 Years. 100 Places.[3] The Gulf of Mexico can be seen from the building.

An adjacent cube-shaped building houses the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts along with a bank and a cafe. Just to the north of the tower is Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, and just to the east is the Tampa Riverwalk on the Hillsborough River.

Alternate names for the building include its address (400 N Ashley St.) and "the beer can."
