I know this is a little off topic but I like your list. How do you feel about Calgary in the discussion of top 10?

Having just checked out Calgary's skyline, I'm impressed. And a beautiful setting it has. And such a small population to boot.

I assume the oil/gas industry is responsible for much of this.

Well, Calgary's population within the city limits isn't small with over 1 million people. It is its metropolitan area that is not that big with about 1.4 million. I assume you mean by the metro area as smaller.

I think Minneapolis shouldn't even be ranked in the top 10.

I drove by the Transbay Terminal yesterday. That thing looks gorgeous. Can't wait till it is open.

Has it reached its full height? Looks like it to me.

I only lived in Marin for a few years when I was very young (my family moved to Napa when I was 7). But one of the few enduring memories I have from that time is hiking Mt. Tam and seeing that view -- with the whole Bay spread out like some fairy tale kingdom. It's too bad so few photographers seem to venture up there, because as far as I'm concerned it's one of the best vantage points in all of California.

For SF, it is massive. For NYC or Chicago or Hong Kong, this would just be another tall building. Lol!

Yes, they're almost done ensambling the crown.

I guess this thread title can be changed to TO. Crazy that it took them just a little over a year to reach this point.

The boxy tower behind the pier badly needs a makeover. Gosh, the 70s(?)!

The Salesforce Tower is truly impressive at the scale of SF. Along with Transbay, this is a great impulse for the city's skyline. Now only add a more postmodern/classical-styled tower to form a trio (maybe ~290m), that would be awesome!

I used to work in that box (One Market) many years ago, it's a boring box from the outside but the plaza on the bottom it's a San Francisco classic now.

A fast make over would be wrap it all in glass like the 100 Van Ness:


I know it look bad either way..
The advantage of One Market is that it has a very atractive location, bustling bussines activitiy every day and always full of tenants, this prevents a major scale remodeling like in 100 Van Ness from happening but as bussines winds change, the same reasons about location could attract a bigger-richer company interested in the property and hopefully they decide to remodel, it would be awesome to have a modern building in right in the waterfront it but the odds from happening anytime soon are very low.
