If only this building was built closer to the waterfront and had a observation deck and was even taller. Those are my three major gripes. Other than that, I think it is a great addition to the skyline.

By the way The Transbay Terminal is happening at the very bottom of Sales Force tower and yet nobody says nothing about it..big project but no discussions in the SSC international forums, It's thread in the SF subforum seems to be dead.

Two more levels of the crown structure, which is approximately 67 feet total in height.

Yup, it is for SF except that it isn't the tallest in the west and it doesn't have a observation deck. I know I'm harping on it too much, but if only it was the tallest in the west and had a observation deck.

So I'm assuming they dropped the "gap" features on the crown that made it look like a mutilated frenulum?

You have a pretty interesting imagination if you think that this:



equals "mutilated frenulum"

I was going by the first render on the very first page, from when the slits were first added and appeared as deep gaps with the glass curving inwards. Of course, I've seen renders like the one you posted which clearly show a more subtle light feature, hence the question...
