Elihu M. Harris State Office Building

SF-Bay Area

Created to meet key objectives for the State of California, the Elihu M. Harris State Office Building is the latest addition to downtown Oakland. It complements the Federal Building towers and completes a visual frame for City Hall. Its urban design puts the finishing touch of a government center that also includes new city administrations offices.

The 22-story tower rises from two podiums, sensitively scaled to neighboring structures. Deeply inset windows framed by pre-cast concrete pilasters reflect the architectural character of the area. The first level of the building is distinguished by a dark stone base and granite column covers. Upper stories are clad in textured pre-cast concrete panels.
