The Bank of Commerce Building is a 15-storey office tower in downtown Windsor, Ontario constructed in 1974.

The structure is designed in the modern style and faced with precast panels with brown exposed aggregate which cover the vertical piers and spandrels. The windows are set in horizontal groups of four and recessed in dark aluminum frames. It is connected to the neighbouring Windsor Downtown Travelodge Hotel.

The building previously housed a Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) regional headquarters. The CIBC sign at the top of the building has since been removed but CIBC still maintains a retail branch on the first floor. Other tenants include the Great Lakes Regional Office of the International Joint Commission.

The private Windsor Club occupied the fourteenth floor from 1987 through November 2015 when it relocated elsewhere in the city. Building owners remodeled the space to accommodate a restaurant which opened in June 2016.

West across Ouellette Avenue is One Riverside Drive, headquarters of Chrysler Canada and to the north, across Riverside Drive is the Riverfront Bike Trail.
