Was at the base last year in my first visit to SF. Very iconic even with Salesforce eclipsing it.

The problem with the Transamerica Building is that since it was first built its various owners have refused to do the obvious and light it like a giant Christmas tree during the holidays.

San Francisco's iconic Transamerica Pyramid sells for $650M, the largest US commercial real estate transaction post-COVID-19

One of the most iconic skyscrapers in San Francisco, the Transamerica Pyramid Center, has officially sold, marking the largest commercial real estate transaction in the U.S. since the COVID-19 outbreak.

A joint venture led by New York real estate investment firm SHVO and Deutsche Finance America closed their acquisition of the Transamerica Pyramid on Wednesday.

The group paid $650 million for the 48-story tower and complex that spans an entire block and includes three buildings totaling 750,000 square-feet in San Francisco's Financial District. A group of European investors anchored by Bayerisch Versorgungskammer also participated in the deal.

Sources familiar with the deal told Yahoo Finance it’s seen as a huge endorsement for San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Despite the coronavirus pandemic and headlines of a San Francisco exodus, the investors remain long-term bullish on the city and the tech community. Their strategy centers around buying prime, landmark properties to own, develop, and manage with a long-term investment horizon.

Going forward, the group plans to invest in the property and return it to its glory days by focusing on both the tenant and visitor experience.

It being the Christmas season, it's time to point out yet again that the TransAmerica ownership has never sanctioned the obvious: Lighting it unlike a giant Christmas tree. Booooo! to them.
