History and Architecture
The exterior of the building is clad in buff-colored Indiana limestone, whose color suggests the warmth and sunlight characteristics of the Central Valley climate, and terminates at ground level in a dark-green polished granite to provide compatibility with the tree-lined streets of downtown Sacramento. A tinted blue-green glass in a sweeping arc that mimics the flow and passage of the nearby Sacramento River complements the exterior stone.
Building Owners and Managers Association named it The Outstanding Building of the Year® (TOBY) – Regional Award, Federal Building Category – in 2002 and 2003.
