The Rupert Street Estate was a council estate in the Nechells Green complex of Aston, Birmingham. Plans for the estate were approved in 1958 and 1959 as part of redevelopment plans for Nechells. The estate was demolished in the late 1990s as part of the regeneration of the Heartlands area.

The estate was consisted of three 12 storey tower blocks, a 7 storey tower block, and four 6 storey blocks of maisonettes, as well as numerous terraced houses. The tower blocks overlooked Nechells Parkway (A47), whereas the maisonette blocks formed a row along Rupert Street. Two of the 12 storey tower blocks were constructed either side of the old Great Lister Street, which were Sycamore House & Chestnut House.

The Rupert Street Estate was one of four estates in Nechells Green. The other three were the Kellett Road Estate, Duddeston Manor Estate and Cromwell Street Estate. Across all four estates there were 27 tower blocks making up the 67 tower blocks of Aston.
