Embarcadero Center facts for kids
Embarcadero Center is a commercial complex of five office towers, two hotels, a shopping center with more than 125 stores, bars, and restaurants, two movie theaters, and a fitness center on three levels. There is an outdoor ice skating rink during winter months. Embarcadero Center sits on a 9.8-acre (4.0 ha) site largely bounded by Clay (to the north), Sacramento (to the south), Battery (to the west), and the Embarcadero (to the east), in the financial district of San Francisco.
Developed by Trammell Crow, David Rockefeller and John Portman, construction began with Tower One in 1971, with the last off-complex extension, Embarcadero West, completed in 1989. The two extension buildings are west of Battery.
The 4.8 million square feet (445,900 m²) complex accommodates offices for 14,000 people along with mixed-use areas accommodating retail, dining, entertainment and cinema functions.
