TALL STRUCTLTRES RISE. Downtown buildings of San Francisco stand straight and tall above area devastated by the 1906 earthquake and fire, with other buildings being added. The 43-story Wells Fargo building, sched- uled for completion in 1966, is to rise to left of the telephone building at center. Frame at right is an additional office building for the telephone company. Behind it is the new all-glass Zellerbach building. (AP Wirephoto) San Francisco Buildings Suddenly Spurt Upward By WILLIAM C, HARRISON SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- San Francisco builders. probably mindful of the 1906 earthquake disaster, refrained for half a century from erecting tall structures in the city. Now, suddenly, they are reaching for th? sky. The city's building code is strict --but doesn't limit height. A 43-story Wells FarRo Bank buildins when completed early in 3966, will tower 561 lo-ot above Montgomery Street in the financial district. Planners say it will fte taller than any building west of Texa?, For many years the cily's two tallcsi buildings barely nuflscri 435 feel. No one is quiie sure what's behind the new spurt upward. Some say il's a vigorous economy and a peninsula-bound city-- i about -15 square miles--with no I direction to grow but upward. i Alfred Goldherc, assistant superintendent of the civy's bureau of building inspection, declares, "What's happening is, the East is ! moving out here." ! Says "as Eastery firms expand I into the West they bring their ! building ideas with them." | Goldberg says at least seven of: fice buildings in the late planning . siase or under construction in the ciiy \\-ill average 30 slories. Taller and taller apartment houses arc : crowning -- and crowding -- res- I idential hills. ; Could the cily be laving itself open to possibility of another 1906 . disaster? Goldberg laughs at the idea. The cily learned its lesson i too well, he says. "San Francisco should come through another earthquake like 1906 very well," comments Goldberg, a civil engineer. "There ! would be some cracking of walls i and glass, gingerbread breaking I off. minor damage of that sort. ; But the buildings should stand." Goldberg's view, reflected by ; other civic authorities, is ground- : ed on San Francisco's rigidly en- : forced building code and her mi surance underwriters' fire rating. i Building construction meets lat; eral force requirements. Goldberg : notes, that have become world | standards 'or quake resistance, i Framing and other components I are tied together so stoutly that : a building theoretically will sway : as a unit ralher than break up un- 1 der quake stress. fesf Bon Hearings 4 Balancing Act He calls San Francisco "probably the most lire conscious cily in the United Stales," with a code ! requiring a comprehensive lire ; prelection system built into its ; structures. I "Cou won't find a wood shingle · roof in I own," sayR Goldbcrc. | "Roofs arc often tested by a c t u a l l y .; dropping [laming brands on Uicm : --and Ilicy'd better not catcll fire." ; The cily m a i n t a i n a special high pressure auxiliary w a t e r sup. ply sj-siem t h a t can be lied into ihe rcEtilar system quickly on fire ; department orders.
