The Russ Building

Constructed in 1927, The Russ Building stood for 30 years as the tallest building west of Chicago. The building consists of 511,335 square feet on 31 floors, and features dramatic neo-gothic art deco design. The interior is exquisitely detailed with the finest materials and finishes featuring granite floors and marble wainscoting, elevator lobbies, with ornate area rugs, and period pendant light fixtures. The building has been carefully maintained and periodically refurbished so that it offers a modern office environment within a classic meticulously preserved historic structure. A California State Historic Landmark, The Russ Building fronts the entire block of Montgomery Street between Pine and Bush Streets, directly across the street from The Mills Building. On-site amenities include restaurants, sundry shop, upscale card and stationery store, optical, barbershop, shoe repair, travel agent, and a 400-car parking garage.

Upon completion, the building was iconic enough that Architect and Engineer wrote, “In nearly every large city there is one building that because of its size, beauty of architectural design and character of its use and occupancy, has come to typify the city itself … Today the Russ Building takes this place in San Francisco. By its size and location and by the character of its tenants the building becomes indeed—’The Center of Western Progress’.”

Until the emergence of Sand Hill Road in the 1980s, many of the largest venture capital firms held offices in the Russ Building.
