Thames Tower is a 16 storey tower block on Cromwell Street in the Cromwell Street Estate. It is situated in the Nechells Green complex of Aston, Birmingham. Plans for the block were approved in 1959 and it was completed in 1961 by Wates. It is 47 metres tall and contains 90 flats. It is named after the River Thames in London. The three 16 storey tower blocks were similar to those on the Lyndhurst estate in Erdington before they were revamped.

The estate is one of four that made up the Nechells Green / Duddeston complex of 27 tower blocks and part of the 67 tower blocks in Aston. Along with Duddeston Manor Estate, it was refurbished in the late 1990s, while the other 2 estates (Kellett Road Estate & Rupert Street Estate) were bull-dozed to make way for modern low-rise houses.
