The AT&T Center, formerly called the SBC Tower, Transamerica Building, and Occidental Life Building, is a 452ft (138m) tall skyscraper in South Park, Los Angeles, California. Built to house the offices and computer center of the Occidental Life Insurance Company,[1] it was completed in 1965 and has 32 floors. It is 32nd tallest building in Los Angeles, and was the 2nd tallest (after the Los Angeles City Hall) when it was completed. The International styled building was designed by William Pereira & Associates.

The building is part of a 12-acre (49,000 m2) complex originally called Occidental Center which includes a 225,000-square-foot (20,900 m2) building at 1149 S. Broadway, a 300,000-square-foot (28,000 m2) building on Hill Street, three parking decks with 3,500 spots, and a 6-acre (24,000 m2) plot on the corner of Eleventh and Olive Streets. The three buildings are connected by underground pedestrian tunnels.

Canyon-Johnson Realty Advisors bought the entire complex in April 2003 for $88 million. After they bought it, they converted the least occupied building into below market-rate apartments. In September 2006 Transamerica signed $75 million lease to retain its offices in the building. In 2007 to 2008 it went under a $35 million renovation. Scaffolding was put around the building's crown, the metallic panels were replaced, and the office space was upgraded. Windows restaurant used to be on the top floor of the building but was shut down at the end of July 2007.
