Back to topic, this building really has put SF's skyline to world class caliber. It broke the plateau effect and gave the skyline another focal point.
Yes, back to topic. Lol! Yup, the Salesforce Tower and 181 building is making it into a better and better skyline. SF to me, has a top 5 skyline in North America. As more skyscrapers go up, it is going to make it even better for years to come.

Is this up to date as of today? Both cities are booming but LA is undergoing the largest surge of high rises its ever experienced. Seriously, the skyline will look dramatically different by 2020. I believe it's 13 buildings currently over 400 feet rising as we speak in downtown LA with countless others in the 300 foot range. I'm on mobile so I haven't had the chance to check the website itself.

From earlier today, from on board Caltrain heading to San Jose... it's the tallest structure you can see:

That I will have to check. There are multiple projects being built side by side with the upcoming Salesforce Tower (a.k.a. Transbay Terminal).

That'd be Park Tower!

Just a quick reminder: this is a skyscraper development thread, not a place to make that "endless" comparison between SF and LA. Sorry if I had to delete some posts here, but, you need to focus on what's going on with the project rather than getting sidetracked with "which CA city is better", okay?

Since I find this building highly attractive and very unique, I would be really curious to know what part of the building you do not like?

Different waves float different boats. That said, I'm in agreement with you re: Park Tower.
