Brooks Tower was a 20 storey tower block on Clifford Walk in the Newtown area of Aston, Birmingham. Plans for the block were approved in 1968, along with Wiggin Tower and Hodgson Tower, as the final tower blocks in the Newtown area. Construction was completed in 1971 by Bryant using the Bison construction technique. It was 57 metres tall and contained 118 flats.

Wiggin Tower and Brooks Tower were demolished simultaneously on 4th August 2002 by controlled explosion, as part of Birmingham City Council's 'Newtown Area Initiative.' The site is currently being developed as community youth centre as part of wider regeneration plans for Newtown.
