The Conoco-Phillips Building is a 22-story, 90.2 m (296 ft) office building begun in 1981 and completed in 1983 at 700 G Street in downtown Anchorage, Alaska. It was designed by the Luckman Partnership of Los Angeles, in association with local architects Harold Wirum & Associates.[5] It is the tallest building in the state, and with the nearby Robert B. Atwood Building, predominantly defines the center of the skyline of the city.

The actual building is more of a complex, composed of the atrium, connecting with a smaller office tower. The main tower houses the Alaska regional corporate headquarters of ConocoPhillips, while the smaller tower consists of local branches of major companies, including the New York Life Insurance Company and KPMG. There is also a branch of the Alaska Club gym in the building.

The sky-lit atrium is open to the public, and has a small food court, as well as a water fountain. Sometimes public events are held here, notably the annual summer Wild Salmon on Parade local art auction.
