Transbay Tower

Welcome to the new center

San Francisco’s idea-driven businesses are reinventing the way the world works. Our thought leaders deserve a workplace that truly ignites their aspirations and empowers their human capital. Unlike buildings of the past, the Transbay Tower considers the health and wellness of every occupant. It is no longer enough for buildings to simply house companies. They also need to care for each individual occupying it.
This is an environment for the new generation.

World-class features

Office buildings are among the largest, most complex machines on the planet.
