AT&T Building is a high rise in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was completed in 1932 and is 22 stories tall. It is primarily used for office space and is the headquarters for AT&T in Indiana. The AT&T Building is connected with the AT&T 220 Building, which is located just to the south.

The building has been expanded and has achieved its present form only after a few iterations. Amazingly, it has not always had its current location nor orientation. In 1930, the building, then weighing 11,000 tons, was moved 100 feet west and 52 feet to the south, while being rotated on a 90 degree arc to its current location. Even more amazingly, this was done without interrupting customer's telephone service or telephone business operations. [1]
