Whitacre Tower, also known as One AT&T Plaza, and formerly known as One Bell Plaza and One SBC Plaza, is a 37-story high-rise in Downtown Dallas, located adjacent to the Akard Street Mall.

It serves as headquarters for AT&T and for Southwestern Bell Telephone, who operates as "AT&T Southwest". The building is 580 feet (177 m) tall and was constructed in 1984. Currently, it is the 13th-tallest building in the city. It is part of a four structure complex owned by AT&T.

AT&T moved its headquarters to the tower from a location in San Antonio, Texas in 2008. Mayor of Dallas Tom Leppert said in 2008 that he hoped that AT&T would stay in the central city.[1] AT&T renamed the tower the Whitacre Tower after Edward Whitacre Jr., a former chairperson and chief executive, in 2009. AT&T moved Spirit of Communication, a gold statue, from its New York City offices to the Whitacre Tower. [2]
