On April 16, 1906, the newly completed Flood Building was one of the very few structures to survive both the earthquake and the subsequent great fire. Its steel frame structure with brick curtain walls covered in gray Colusa sandstone proved to be substantial enough to withstand the epic 8.3 magnitude tremblor. The building was restored and re-opened in 1907. Since then, the corner of Powell & Market has become “one of the world’s prime pieces of real estate, dominated by the Flood Building” (San Francisco Chronicle) renowned as “the city's most monumental office building” (Splendid Survivors: San Francisco's Downtown Architectural Heritage). Quite simply, the Flood Building “is the grand dame of San Francisco” (Andy Edwards, Vice President, CB Richard Ellis).
