Best Corporate Headquarters

Post the corporate headquarters you find most impressive, dominating, or aesthetically pleasing. Whether they be Global 500 company headquarters or the mom & pop shop down the road, post them and let us know which company has the best HQ.

Do you think you can find a clean shot of the building, like an aerial with it right in the middle? I can't tell which one it is from this set of photos. Even with you using more than one photo, it's difficult. What is it the corporate headquarters of?

I think it's the buildings, not just a single structure. The one in charlotte is one of my favorite buildings.

But what is it the corporate headquarters for? I doubt if the corporate headquarters of any corporation is in all of these buildings. So, in keeping with the thread title, what is the corporate headquarters?

UniCredit Bank
Milan

Project of the skyscraper, along with other towers, redesigned an entire district: Porta Nuova. Designed by Cesar Pelli, it's a sort of tribute to our Cathedral (how you can see the spire is a modern interpretation of the old ones). UniCredit Bank HQ is now a symbol of the city, and a great hub with its circular Gae Aulenti Square (also here another tribute to italian architecture: the square), and the nearest urban contemporary park "Library of Trees" (which is U / C). Here you can find also branded stores, from fashion to food.

BHP Billiton's Perth headquarters (the tall one on the left). Known as Brookfield Place.

There are 6 towers and a pavilion that are part of Toronto-Dominion Centre. TD Bank uses the tallest tower, Toronto Dominion Tower, and the pavilion as as bank branch. They might have some staff in the other towers as well.

To finish off the Canadian Big 5 Banks, here's the legal corporate headquarters in Montreal at Place Ville-Marie.

If we're doing the Big 5, we'd need to include the largest Canadian bank, Royal Bank. Royal Bank of Canada occupies both of the gold towers. You can see a bit of TD Bank's HQ (black tower) and CIBC's HQ (silver tower on the left) in the first photo.
