Southwestern Bell Headquarters Built: 1925
Architect: Mauran, Russell, & Crowell
Status: occupied and in use by Southwest Bell.

This is St. Louis's best example of a building stepped back at its upper heights to avoid throwing shadows on the surrounding streets.
This sort of massing was modeled after a 1917 New York zoning ordinance.
