information about Transamerica Pyramid
The Transamerica Pyramid is located at 600 Montgomery St and was the tallest building in the United States west of the Mississippi River from 1972-1974. The building has 48 floors, 3,678 windows and was built in 1972. The largest floor is the 5th floor, with 21,025 sq ft, while the 48th floor is the smallest, with only 2,025 sq ft. Transamerica wanted a taller building but the city planning commission would not approve it because it interfered with precious views of San Francisco Bay from Nob Hill. The eastside wing contains elevators and the westside wing has a stairwell and smoke tower. The "spire" is the upper 212 feet.
