I think with the Salesforce, 50 First Street and 181 Fremont towers added to the mix San Francisco will get a lot more "10s" in the skyline poll. It will, at the very least, give LA and Houston a good run for that much coveted number 3 spot in the NA skyline quest. This is, of course,, just my opinion. YOMV!

Wating for Sales Force Tower and 181 Fremont to be completed to rate it 10

At the moment I'll give it a 9.

My love for this place is rising and rising, it´s such an underrrated nice place. But I am still not sure how to rate it.

IMHO San Francisco has taken over 3rd place in terms of skylines in North America. See why below.

With those 3 new rather tall towers..... San Francisco's skyline has really evolved and become a major player again. Looks great!

Just so everyone's clear, the image below is a rendering based on prospective construction, not a picture of what exists today.

But still beautiful.

True, however both Salesforce Tower and Oceanwide Center are currently under construction and Salesforce Tower is already the tallest office tower west of Chicago. The rendering above is an accurate depiction of what San Francisco's skyline will be by 2021. And to me it's very impressive.
