Googling for information about Flatiron Buildings I found the Columbus Tower in San Francisco. I couldn’t remember I took picture of this building but after examine my San Francisco map I saw the building in a series of picture I took of the Transamerica Pyramid. The green building on the right side of the pyramid is the Columbus Tower, one of the flatiron-style buildings in SF.
I hope to make more and better photos in the summer of 2017.

Transamerica Pyramid
The Transamerica Pyramid is the tallest skyscraper in the San Francisco skyline. The building no longer houses the headquarters of the Transamerica Corporation, which moved its U.S. headquarters to Baltimore, Maryland, but it is still associated with the company and is depicted in the company's logo.
Designed by architect William Pereira and built by Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company, at 853 ft (260 m), on completion in 1972 it was the eighth tallest building in the world.

The distinctive copper-green Flatiron style structure is bounded by Columbus Avenue, Kearny Street and Jackson Street, straddling the North Beach, Chinatown, and Financial districts of the city. Much of the building is occupied by film studio American Zoetrope, and the ground floor houses a cafe named after the company. Architect Salfield & Kohlberg (wikipedia)
