The Hobart Building is an office high rise located at 582–592 Market Street and Montgomery Street in the financial district of San Francisco. It was completed in 1914 after only eleven months, which led to accusations that it had been constructed with a degree of recklessness, and was at the time the second tallest building in the city, with 21 floors, and 87 m (285 ft).
Said to be the favorite commercial building of its designer, Willis Polk, its sculpted terra cotta exterior with Baroque ornamentation, and handcrafted brass and Italian marble interior are a noted example of neoclassicist architecture. Its unusual shape was dictated by the site, which was an asymmetric polygon, and since a neighboring structure was torn down, exposing one flank, it is now even more idiosyncratic and striking.
