McKesson Plaza is a 38-story, 161 m (528 ft) office skyscraper at 1 Post Street and Market Street in the financial district of San Francisco, California. The building serves as headquarters for the McKesson Corporation.[5]

Designed by architect Welton Becket, the building exemplified his penchance for repetitive geometric patterns and walls clad in natural stone. Landscape architect SWA Group's design for the busy triangular site created an octagonal, two-tiered opening leading to a Bay Area Rapid Transit station, and flanked by trees, shops and a series of granite steps used for seating.[6]
