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. The white stone and glass skyscraper has over 1,000,000 square feet (93,000 m2) of office space.
The Whitacre Tower was built in 1982.
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. Most of the around 700 workers moving to the Whitacre Tower were moved into 17 floors that were being refurbished. In August 2008 AT&T sold the tower to Icahn Enterprises and took a long term lease in the tower.
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 Bedminster, New Jersey, offices to the Whitacre Tower.
