Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2186
Significance: The Holbrook Building is a significant early post-fire office building designed by a major San Francisco architectural firm. It is distinguished by the integrity of its facade and contribution to the streetscape. The Holbrook Building was rated "B" in Splendid Survivors, the survey of historic buildings by the Foundation for San Francisco's Architectural Heritage. This designation implies that the building is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. It also is rated "3" on a scale of 0-5 for worthwhile buildings in the San Francisco Planning Department's Architectural Quality Survey. The survey notes the quality of its cornice and top story as a contribution to the streetscape. Also recognized is its role as a transition in scale between the neighboring Anglo and London Paris National Bank Building and nearby highrise structures.
