450 Sutter is a twenty-six-floor, 105-metre (344-foot) skyscraper in San Francisco, California. The tower is known for its "Neo-Mayan" Art Deco design by architect Timothy L. Pflueger.[4] The building's vertically faceted exterior later influenced Pietro Belluschi in his similarly faceted exterior of 555 California, the former Bank of America Center completed in 1969.[5]

The building's tenants are largely dental and medical professional offices.
