Wells Fargo Center rises 32 stories at the heart of Sacramento's central business district.  The building's design, by architectural firm Hellmuth, Obata, and Kassabaum, consists of 502,365 square feet on one city block. The Wells Fargo Center facade is finished in alternating dark tempered glass and granite.  The building tower stands atop a five-story lobby with a glass atrium entrance. In front of the main entrance, the plaza is paved in granite with palm trees and seasonal flowers. The building was completed in 1992.

A series of high-efficiency retrofits and upgrades as well as good design, close attention to proper maintenance, and continual optimization of building systems and controls resulted in Wells Fargo Center earning the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance. These retrofits and upgrades included the replacement of all building lighting with high-efficiency T8 florescent lamps with electronic ballasts.

Hines has been recognized with a multiple ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence and Partner of the Year awards. For a summary of the firm's participation in the ENERGY STAR program and other sustainability information, visit
