One Charles Center is a historic office building located at Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is a 23-story aluminum and glass International Style skyscraper designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and constructed in 1962. It was the first modernistic office tower in Baltimore and the keynote of the city’s nationally recognized downtown urban renewal movement and Charles Center. The base consists of a concrete-faced podium topped by a paved plaza, with the "T"-shaped office tower atop. The tower is detailed in Mies's signature bronze metal trim and gray glass.

The tower was the subject of a design competition that included a submission by Marcel Breuer. The tower was completed in 13 months at a cost of $10,350,000. One Charles Center was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. It is located next to the Fidelity Building, which was completed in 1897. ||| Public domain ||| Creative Commons Zero, Public Domain Dedication ||| Creative Commons Attribution 3.0
