Description Credits/Info Recognition

An impressive 85-foot high, white-colored, Italian marble facade announces the presence of this 13-story office building. Located near the downtown core on San Francisco's busy Market Street, the high-rise structure is sympathetic to the architecture of nearby Civic Center buildings, employing similar heights and proportions. A simple, stepped back curtain wall above the marble facade creates landscaped terraces that ensure sunlight reaches Market Street and the United Nations Plaza below. A glazed gable structure culminates the vertical composition and creates a spacious office for the business owner and a subtle but distinctive skyline feature.
