One of San Francisco’s early crop of skyscrapers originally towered over California Street with its 22 stories in the 60’s but nowadays seems petite compared to its hulking neighbor, the Bank of America tower.. It still cuts a dashing silhouette in the Financial District with its sharp black and white banding and its decorative bronze-colored hat which appears to hover above the top floor.
