"A skyscraper landmark of SF" Transamerica Pyramid Center Tip by SLLiew


Driving toward and around in downtown San Francisco, you will not miss this beautiful landmark with it unique design.

Completed in 1972, the height is 260 meters with 48 floors. It survived the 1989, 7.1-magnitude Bay Area earthquake and apparently the top storey swayed nearly a foot from side to side.
