The Federation capital city is Paris, not San Francisco. As Arlington, Virginia, houses the Pentagon a relatively small distance away from Washington, D.C., so does San Francisco house Starfleet Headquarters a relatively small distance away from Paris.
I was referring to the Federation Council Building, as per Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
Pardon me -- I forgot that not everyone reads the novels. Yeah, the Federation Council building seemed to be established as being in San Fran in ST4. But, really, that was such a lame-ass building that I tend to whole-heartedly embrace the retcon made in the novel Articles of the Federation, where the Federation Council is established to normally meet on the first floor of the Palais de la Concorde in Paris, with the President's office being on the top floor. (We can assume that the Federation Council building in San Fran is a regular alternate meeting site -- maybe the Palais was undergoing renovation!)
