The Providian Financial Building (also known as the Pacific Gateway Building) is a high-rise office building located at 201 Mission Street in the South of Market district of San Francisco, California. The building stands at a height of 417 feet (127 m) and has 20 stories. Its construction was completed in 1981.

The building is located on an unusual trapezoidal mid-block lot that extends from Mission Street to Howard Street. When it was constructed, the building was flanked by ramps to the Embarcadero Freeway, which have since been torn down.[4]
