The Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building complex is a federal building complex in Oakland, California, constructed as part of the Oakland City Center redevelopment project. In 1998, the United States Congress passed a bill naming the building for former mayor and Congressman Ronald V. Dellums. It consists of two identical towers topped with pyramid-shaped roofs, echoing similar landmarks such as the Alameda County Courthouse. The towers are connected by a ground level rotunda and an elevated sky bridge. The podium of one of the towers houses a federal courthouse.
Both buildings are 268 feet / 81.7 meters in height to roof, 100.0 m in height including spires.
During the George Floyd protests, on May 30, 2020, a Federal Protective Service officer was shot and killed and another was wounded in an attack outside the building. The officer slain was providing security services during a protest near the courthouse.
