Building History

California sugar magnate Claus Spreckels (1828-1908) and his wife, Anna Mangels, (1829-1910) had 13 children, only five of whom reached adulthood. The second youngest was Emma C. Spreckels (1870-1924), who married three times, the last to the Englishman Arthur Hutton. This office building, built by Claus, was named for her. In 1899, the Spreckels Family owned prime parcels of real estate along Market Street, including 327 Market, 421 Market, and 703 Market (the San Francisco Call Building) and 927 Market (the Emma Spreckels Building).

Demolished; this high-rise was lost in the San Francisco Earthquake and Fire of 04/18/1906.
