I used to think 1 WTC didn't fit in with Lower Manhattan's skyline at first too. But now with the other World Trade towers going up it's starting to fit in a lot better. Also I'm probably just used to it now too since I've been seeing it every single day for the last few years.

NYC is just going through a new generation of architectural design at the same time as a big skyscraper boom.

By the way, here's one of my latest shots of Salesforce Tower, one day before topping out Thursday:


That one is from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission HQ on Beale Street (northeast of Mission & Fremont) close to Rincon Hill.

San Francisco is by far the best city on the West coast!

Best city? Yes. Best skyline? I would say it is, but it is still debatable. Vancouver and LA are great too in their own right. I don't like Seattle's.

I love the scale and slender proportion of Salesforce Tower. It's the tallest building in the skyline by a clear margin, but its not overbearing and fits in comfortably with the current skyscrapers. In addition, the elegant but somewhat subdued crown allows The Transamerica Pyramid to retain its very strong iconic presence.

I just wish it was even taller.
