Pier 45 and Bulkhead WharfPier 45 is the largest pier in the Embarcadero Historic District. It consists of a pier substructure on which four transit sheds are built. The substructure was built during 1926-1927 along with the Pier 45 Section of the bulkhead wharf, and the transit sheds, complete with their architectural fronts, were built in 1928-1929. Changes to Pier 45 since the period of significance include removal of rail spurs and demolition of the hoisting tower. The most substantial changes were made following the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, when the substructure was strengthened and walls were repaired.
