50 Fremont Center is a 43-story, 183 m (600 ft) office skyscraper completed in 1985 at Fremont and Mission Streets on the boundary of the financial district and South of Market Area (SOMA) of San Francisco, California.

History[edit]

50 Fremont Street was developed and owned by Fremont Properties who sold the building in 2000, which was later purchased by Hines, who in turn sold the property to TIAA-CREF in late 2004.[5] Hines Interests Limited Partnership provides property management for this building. The building's design, by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, includes stepped-back vertical bays at each corner, rising to a building crown that evokes the design of historic Art Deco skyscrapers.

In January 2012, Salesforce.com announced that it signed an 18-year lease to occupy 400,000 square feet (37,000 m2) for US$339 million.[6] In November 2014, Salesforce agreed to purchase the tower from TIAA-CREF for US$640 million.[7][8]
