When the 26 floor 450 Sutter Building was completed in 1928, it was the second highest structure in the City and its functional, wrap-around windows still offer stunning panoramic views of San Francisco Bay and the Financial District. Many elaborate features of this Timothy Pfluger design characterize the excess of the Art Deco Era. Elements such as an ornate 2-story entrance with marbled walls, the bronzed lobby and tapestried outer skin bring to mind other great buildings of the early 20th century, such as the Chrysler Building and Rockefeller Center in New York City.
The building is located one block north of Union Square on Sutter Street between Stockton and Powell.
