Facts

  • 345 California Center would have been taller had it not been for height restrictions of the day.
  • This mixed-use skyscraper is organized as follows: two subterranean levels for parking; ground floor - 4th floor are retail and lobbies; 5th floor- 35th floor are office levels; 36th & 37th are mechanical levels and the 38th-48th floors are hotel.
  • Known to locals as "Tweezer Towers".
  • Tower sheathed in white and gray polished granite.
  • The Mandarin Oriental Hotel (called "MO") occupies the top eleven floors with the address of 222 Sansome.
  • This is the tallest mid-block skyscraper in San Francisco. By placing the building in the middle of the block, developers were able to preserve four historic buildings, one at each corner.
  • The JH Dollar Building and the Robert Dollar Building, both former headquarters for large shipping companies, are located at the northwest and northeast corners of the block.
  • 220 Sansome Street and 200 Pine are located at the southwest and southeast corners of the block.
  • The top floors were originally intended as owner-occupied condominium residences. They were converted to hotel use during construction.
