Built as tall as the city allows, 500 feet from grade, One America Plaza is the tallest building in San Diego, California and a prominent fixture in the city's skyline. The 34-story, obelisk-shaped tower is located in the waterfront district of Downtown San Diego, and is known locally as the "Philips Screwdriver Building" for the unique shape of its roof. One America Plaza was designed by Jahn Architects and Krommenhoek/McKeown & Associates. The America Plaza trolley transfer station is located on the ground floor of the building between the main building and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.
