San Francisco has a lot hills so I am not sure people is willing to pay $20 or more to go up on the top building to see the city view while there are many spots in the city with better view than Salesforce and it is ....free. New York City and Chicago are all flat so the top decks are the best to view these cities.
With $20 you can Uber round trip from your hotel to those hill and the view is way much better than Saleforce. I live in San Francisco, I know. Seattle is different. Even from my apartment on 20th floor, the view is way much better than Saleforce.
May be they will open for bar or restaurant but not observation deck because they won't make money.

Looks like the whole building is only built for offices, so I doubt there will be a bar or restaurant up there. And maybe in the future, they will consider a observation deck or observatory if there are complaints. But that will probably not happen for many years from now.

lol are we really gonna have the observation deck debate again, for the 500th time?

There's no observation deck, get over it. But there is gonna be a public/private event space on the top floor, so if you go to an event there, you can observe to your heart's content.

Will the interior of the crown still have wind turbines in it? I haven't heard anything about them for awhile. It would be cool if you could see them rotate behind the screen from a distance.

Only in San Francisco would people sperg about private property not having an observation deck as if they're entitled to it.
