Building History

The 8.5 acre Embarcadero Center Project was part of the larger Golden Gateway Redevelopment of 51 acres that once housed San Francisco's wholesale produce market; John Portman and Associates designed the Security Pacific Bank Building (finished in 1971), the Hyatt Regency Hotel (1973), and the Levi Strauss Building (1974), as well as The Shopping Gallery, a three-level mall. Phase Three of the Embarcadero Center Master Plan was completed by Portman in 1976 and Phase Four in 1981.
