Preliminary project assessment is pending for a project proposed at 3150 Third Street in Bayview Hunters Point, San Francisco.

101 California Street is tied with two other buildings as the 13th tallest skyscraper in the Bay Area planned or built. The 600-foot office building was complete in the Financial District in 1982 as the third tallest building in the San Francisco skyline. Its round and glassy exterior with a geometric atrium base is an iconic design by the influential architects, Philip Johnson and John Burgee. Hines and the Singaporean Sovereign Wealth Fund are joint property owners.
