I really like the building's proportion and scale on the skyline. It clearly the tallest, but feels nicely nestled in with the other towers and doesn't overwhelm...

It will. The LED system wasn't completed in time for this year's Dreamforce, hence the jerry-rigged uplighting scheme from the 62 floor.

Did they say when this "show" will begin?

I agree. In some ways, the Transamerica Pyramid looks more overwhelming.

They started testing a portion (southwest corner) of it last night.

If you want to really nerd out, like I did, go to http://www.earthcam.com/usa/californ...anciscoskyline and click on 'archives', then click on 6-7pm, and scrub to about 18:13:29 and you'll see it in action...kind of.

Cool. So, basically they have installed the LED lights already for the show.

The tower's got wings too, cool! The first time I saw the same light effect on the mist was with The Shard.

Wow! Those photos are unbelievably gorgeous. In a few years, it will get even better.

I am from Sydney. I visited beautiful San Francisco in 2013. Yes, this new building is tallest, but hardly iconic. You don't have to be competing with LA or Philadelphia.

We will see how iconic it is once it opens and people react to it. It does dominate the skyline though and I think it looks better than the new buildings in Philly and LA.
