Transamerica Pyramid to Shine ‘Beacon of Hope’ for Bay Area

The owners of the Transamerica Pyramid will resume daily lighting of the building’s crown jewel beacon as a sign of hope for the region and solidarity with Bay Area healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 6,000-watt beacon, which sits atop the 853-foot tall Transamerica Pyramid, can be seen throughout the city as well as the East and North Bays when lit at night.

“Each night at 8pm, the crown jewel beacon will be lit to honor healthcare workers throughout the Bay Area who are performing vital work and battling to save lives of Bay Area residents during the crisis,” says Elaine Chan, General Manager at JLL.

“We hope the beacon will give some inspiration and hope to the millions of residents who are hunkering down in an attempt to ‘flatten the curve’ of infection here in the Bay Area,” Suman Gera, Managing Director at Aegon Asset Management adds.
