Can't wait till this building is finished. Now if only it was 1200 feet with a observation deck.

Better tell us for the 50th time, just in case we forgot.

the curved exterior is powerful on the inside. Gives the floor a lounge-like feel.

Salesforce and 181 Fremont are doing just what I expected; transforming the San Francisco skyline. It's great to see the home of major league baseball's Giants move up to the skyline big leagues. Bravo!

I think it is a top 5 skyline in North America. I know it isn't as good as NYC, Chicago, or Toronto for sure. It is debatable if it is as good as Vancouver's. Just my opinion.

Off topic, but although Vancouver's skyline is very busy, and it's got a great setting, for me the buildings are a little generic. SF has a truly classic skyline framed beautifully by the bay and bridges.

I forgot to mention Miami. Miami has a great skyline too and might be better than SF's. So, the SF skyline is top 10 in North America for sure. It is debatable if it is top 5 after thinking about it.

I have seen both Miami and SF in person and all I can say is that I find SF's most pleasing to the eye. Miami is like a gym rat' s body while SF is more of a classic greek body, if you know what I mean

Miami and Vancouver are pretty comparable in my mind -- good density and a great natural setting, belied by no real focal point and mostly forgettable architecture. If even half of Miami's supertall proposals come to fruition, it will probably vault its way into top-5 or even top-3 contention, but right now I'd still pick several skylines ahead of it, including SF.

I think with the impending completion of Salesforce Tower and 181 Fremont, San Francisco is comfortably #4 in North America behind NYC, Chicago and Toronto. #5 is impossibly tough for me -- I'd consider Seattle, Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta and Minneapolis all contenders, but it all comes down to taste.
