The Central Tower on Market Street

The Central Tower on Market Street

Originally the Call Building, this was one of the city's early steel-frame skyscrapers, 300 feet tall. It survived the 1906 earthquake, but was gutted by the subsequent fire. The ornate dome (similar to the Humboldt Bank Building) and other decoration were removed when it was renovated.

The Garden Court at the Palace Hotel

The Garden Court at the Palace Hotel

Before the 1906 earthquake horse-drawn carriages entered the hotel here. The lobby rose nine stories with balconies all around. The hotel was gutted at the very end of the fire, but was rebuilt promptly. The central atrium was once again roofed with glass, but lower, and the space became a restaurant. It has remained one of the city's most glamorous dining venues.

Spiral escalators at San Francisco Centre

The Westfield San Francisco Centre/Nordstrom shopping mall features seven stories of spiraling escalators. The concept here was to bring the amenities of a suburban shopping mall to the center of the city, stacked vertically rather than spread out horizontally.
