The fifty-first tallest structure in the Bay Area is Infinity 1 at 338 Spear Street, SoMa, San Francisco. The 423-foot tall tower opened in 2008 as one of the distinguishing symbols for the development south of Market Street, especially given its prominent position beside the Bay Bridge. Its undulating dark cyan curtain-wall facade reflects modernist architecture’s evolution in the new millennium, facing pressure to reject traditional ornamentation and the boxed rigidity of the 20th-century modernist design. Tishman Speyer was the developer for the construction and remained as the property owner.

Levy Design Partners is manning the design concepts and construction of the project.
