Your correct Pogo.

Actually the State Office complex, doesn't extend past 7th street on CM (thankfully for Sacramento).


The building being replaced by 500 CM (as Costa already pointed out) is the Old Wells Fargo (which closed) when the Wells Fargo Center opened. I'm not certain if it served as anything else prior to Wells Fargo.


BTW thanks Mike for the pictures of the site and the design breakdown.
