Heineman Building

Located in San Francisco’s busy Financial District, you could almost walk by this slender sliver almost without noticing it. It’s rather dwarfed by the buildings on either side, and has no signs or distinguishing features at first glance.

Originally a necktie, belt, and suspender factory commissioned by HM Heineman, the tall and thin structure was built in 1910 by architect GA Applegath and was one of the first buildings in the area after the devastating 1906 earthquake. Applegath knew he was working with something barely the width of a house lot—only some 20 feet wide—but he went 10 stories high nonetheless.
