The Hunter–Dulin Building (also known as the California Commercial Wool Building or 111 Sutter Street) is a class A office building located at 111 Sutter Street in San Francisco, California.

Description and history[edit]

The 25-story, 94 m (308 ft) tall building was completed in 1927. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 17, 1997.[7] The building was totally restored and renovated between 1999 and 2001.

The building served as the West Coast headquarters for the National Broadcasting Company from 1927 to 1942; the executive offices were located on the 21st floor and the studio offices were located on the 22nd. The 22nd floor was formerly occupied by peer-to-peer lending firm Prosper Marketplace. 111 Sutter Street was also the fictional location of the "Spade & Archer" detective agency in Dashell Hammett's famous 1930 book, "The Maltese Falcon". According to Hammett, Sam Spade's office was located on the 5th floor.
