The Church Office Building is home to administrative support staff of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Completed in 1972, the 28-story building stands at 420 feet and is the second-tallest building in Salt Lake City. The architect for the building was George Cannon Young. The building was officially dedicated July 24, 1975, but it was already partially functioning in 1972. Since it is used as an administrative building, it is not open to the public.
Since the 1970s, the Church Office Building has primarily been used by employees involved in running the operations of the Church including communications, welfare and humanitarian work, family history and genealogy, missionary efforts, and production of Church-related materials such as print, video, and online content. The building includes the main tower with 28 floors and east and west wings of four floors each.
