101 California Street is a 48-story office skyscraper completed in 1982 in the Financial District of San Francisco, California. The 183 m (600 ft) tower, providing 1,250,000 sq ft (116,000 m2) of office space, is bounded by California, Davis, Front, and Pine Streets near Market Street.
The faceted cylindrical tower features a seven-story, glass-enclosed lobby and a granite plaza with flower beds and a fountain. During the holiday season, a platform with many oversized Christmas ornaments is added to the plaza. The building's entrance is very similar to that of 101 Park Avenue in New York City, and was also designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee in 1982.
101 California is equipped with a total of thirty-two elevators, with twenty-two serving the tower; two serving floors 45 through 48; four serving the triangular annex building; two serving the garage; and two for freight. The eight stairwells throughout the building are intended for emergency use only.
