The Occidential Life Building built in 1965.

I find it fascinating that in 1965 a 456 ft building was novel enough to have a restaurant on the 32nd floor called "The Tower".
Wouldn't you love to go back in time and have an elegant dinner there.




Below: I found this slightly earlier postcard. Notice the 3rd building of the Occidental Center hasn't been built yet.

So, my question is this:
What is that impressive building they tore down? It resembles the Biltmore Hotel.


Below: You can see the older building in this photo as well.

note: The Occidental Center is now the AT&T Center.
