The second tallest building in San Francisco may have the soaring sights, but it also has the greenest garden on ground floor.
555 California Street
How to Access
Walk up the stairs to the promenade level and walk toward the northwest corner of the building.
The building was designed by Wurster, Bernardi and Emmons, and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Its deep ribbed façade was meant to represent the authority of Bank of America. The bay windows were inspired from San Francisco’s Victorian architecture.
Well-maintained planter boxes with olive trees compliment the bamboo water feature nearby. Wood benches are welcoming to relax on after sitting on syntheitc chairs.
