ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – An icon of the downtown St. Louis skyline is officially completely empty.

One AT&T Center looks pretty dark at night these days. It lost its namesake Saturday, September 30, when AT&T’s lease on the 44-story skyscraper came to an close.

909 Chestnut is the area’s tallest building by number of floors.

AT&T Missouri President John Sondag has told KMOX that the company is staying downtown in two other large buildings.

“For the past year and a half, we’ve been investing significantly, I’d say upwards of multi-million dollar investments, to make those buildings kind of state-of-the-art. We’re making flexible and open floor plans; we’re bringing in state-of-the-art technology,” he says.

Sondag says they plan on keeping all of their workers downtown.

The tower is a leading contender to headline the region’s bid for Amazon’s second headquarters.

Amazon wants its choice city to have at least half-a-million square feet ready to go immediately, with options for building out beyond that.
