Kaiser Center, aka the Kaiser Building, was at one time the tallest building in Oakland, California. Architect Welton Becket designed the building to serve as the world headquarters Henry J. Kaiser, who for a number of years also lived in the penthouse apartment.

The Kaiser Center was built on the former site of the College of Holy Names, which moved to the Oakland Hills in 1957.

It is adjacent to the Kaiser Roof Garden, which is on top of a 5-story parking structure that serves the building. The Kaiser Center is also the home of of world class meetings and events. More info is available at www.kaisercenterevents.com . The building next door to is the Ordway Building.
