Embarcadero Center is a commercial complex of five office towers and two hotels on a 9.8-acre (4.0 ha) site located off the Embarcadero in the financial district of San Francisco.[1]

Developed by Trammell Crow, David Rockefeller and John Portman, construction began with Tower One in 1971, with the last off-complex extension, Embarcadero West, completed in 1989.[2]

The 4.8 million square feet (445,900 m²) complex accommodates offices for 14,000 people along with mixed-use areas accommodating retail, dining, entertainment and cinema functions.[1]
