ATB Place, formerly Telus Plaza, is an office complex in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada originally built as the headquarters of Alberta Government Telephones (AGT). The two office towers in the complex are now separately owned and named ATB Place Tower and TELUShouse. The towers serve as the headquarters of ATB Financial and the main provincial offices for Telus, respectively.
The south tower, TELUS House (formerly TELUS Plaza South, and originally the AGT Tower (Alberta Government Telephones Tower)), was completed in 1971, at a cost of C$22 million. It was Edmonton's tallest building until Manulife Place was completed in 1981. It is 134.4 metres (34 storeys) tall. For many years the 33rd floor was home to Vista 33, a telephone and telecommunications museum. There was also an observation deck which afforded panoramic views of Edmonton from what was then the city's tallest building. Vista 33 was closed in 1993.
ATB Tower is 90 metres tall (26 storeys, 296 feet) and was completed in 1969. It contains retail space at the ground level and via Edmonton Pedway system to the Edmonton LRT in the concourse of ATB Place. The concourse courtyard was added after TELUS moved in and renovated it. It opened as McCauley Plaza, named after the first mayor of Edmonton, in which a bronze bust was displayed. The location was later renamed TELUS Plaza. After the name change to ATB Place, the bust was removed from public viewing.
A third building, the two storey ATB Place annex, is located at the southeast corner of the complex. Originally the home of the (now defunct) Edmonton Club, later the main office of an engineering firm, it is currently occupied by a career college.
