Get to know the Transamerica Pyramid Building in San Francisco
San Francisco is known for small picturesque Victorian houses rather that tall skyscrapers, but somehow the Transamerican Pyramid Building has managed to fit into the skyline with its 48 floors, and 68 meter high spire on top of the building, which takes it to the total height of 260 meter. The largest floor of the pyramid is the fifth floor and it is containing 21000 square feet. The 48 floor contains only 2000 square feet.
The building was originally designed to be headquartering to the Trans American airline, and today it is home to 50 companies. Unfortunately, it is not open to the public.
