McKesson Plaza is a 38-story, 161 m (528 ft) office skyscraper located at 1 Post Street and Market Street in the Financial District of San Francisco, California. The building serves as headquarters for the McKesson Corporation.[6]

Designed by architect Welton Becket, the building exemplified his penchant for repetitive geometric patterns and walls clad in natural stone. Landscape architect SWA Group's design for the busy triangular/flatiron 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.[7]
