The Summit is a highrise condominium tower developed by Joseph Eichler, located near the top of the upscale Russian Hill in San Francisco, California, at 999 Green Street. The tower was designed by Niell Smith and Associates. Above ground, it has 4 floors of parking and 25 floors of residential condominiums. The tower, completed in 1965, has some of San Francisco's most expensive and scenic condos.[3] This residential tower is featured in Sean Wilsey's book Oh the Glory of It All as well as "Significant Others" and "Sure of You" by Armistead Maupin.

Residents include former Secretary of State George Shultz and his wife, San Francisco's chief of protocol, Charlotte Smith Mailliard Swig Shultz. The couple hosted British Prime Minister Tony Blair at their two-floor penthouse home when Blair visited California in July 2006.[3]
