History

The building is part of a 12-acre (4.9 ha) complex originally called Occidental Center which includes a 225,000 sq ft (20,900 m2) building at 1149 S. Broadway, a 300,000 sq ft (28,000 m2) building on Hill Street, three parking decks with 3,500 spots, and a 6 acres (2.4 ha) 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.
