The Financial District

A neighborhood that serves as San Francisco's main central business district. It is home to the city's largest concentration of corporate headquarters, law firms, insurance companies, real estate firms, banks savings and loans, and other financial institutions. All six San Francisco Fortune 500 companies Wells Fargo, PG&E Corporation, and Gap are located in the district. The area is marked by the cluster of high-rise towers in the triangular area east of Kearny Street, south of Washington Street, west of the Embarcadero that rings the waterfront and north of Market Street.

The city's tallest buildings including 555 California Street and the Transamerica Pyramid and many other tall buildings such as 101 California Street and 345 California Street are located there. Montgomery Street is the traditional heart of the district.  

Since the 1980s restrictions on high rise construction have shifted new development to the adjacent South of Market area surrounding the Transbay Transit Center. This area is sometimes called the South Financial District by real estate developers or simply included as part of the Financial District itself.
