Boundary House is a 13 storey tower block on Hollies Croft in the Edgbaston area of Birmingham. Plans for the block were approved in 1966 and construction was completed in 1968 by Wates. It is 38 metres tall, the shortest of a trio of tower blocks, with the others being Century Tower and Wickets Tower. It contains 50 flats.

Refurbishment work commenced on all three towers in 2011. The intention is to improve the structural and thermal performance of the building whilst adding an additional 30 years to its life and achieve the 'Decent Homes' standard set by Central Government. All the towers will be re-roofed with an insulted felt roofing system, receive a new insulation system to the walls, which will be covered in a white render for a contemporary finish, replace all the windows with double-glazed PVC-u window units, enclose all balconies to create a private indoor conservatory space for year-round use, create a lighting system to improve the image of the blocks as well as creating a well-lit and safe environment around them, and to replace the entry systems to the blocks. The plans for the refurbishment were submitted for council approval in 2009 and were drawn up by Birmingham City Council's in-house Urban Design team.
