Great photos. Seems like construction has slowed down or am I wrong?

It hasn't slowed down. It's that there are a lot of associated projects that come along with the tower itself, including the Transbay Terminal which will be home to buses and trains operating to and from San Francisco.

Seeing this tower almost completed really makes me excited for when all the current towers under construction in SoMA are finished. There are 6 towers over 100m at varying stages of construction, one skyscraper in the final stretch, another skyscraper just starting construction, and an additional skyscraper in the planning stages all within a square mile of each other. In terms of an American city that's quite a large boom, and this isn't including Salesforce or any of the towers completed within the last 5 years.

San Francisco's skyline has already been transformed by this tower, it's honestly hard to imagine a time when it wasn't there, and it's only going to keep changing for the better in the near future!

I took last weekend. It seems you can see the new SalesForce from everywhere in the city. The Pyramid is on the renovation.
I passed to this building at 4 AM on the weekend and the construction workers are still working on Transbay Transit Terminal. They are on the clock and want this project to be done the end this year and Saleforce by 2018.

Yes. That is Mount D ! Bohemio, you must know the Bay Area pretty well. Most people would not have known (or even cared) what that big hill in the picture was. Mt. D is pretty cool... winding road takes you all the way to the very top.

I hate to say it but up close, the Wilshire Grand Center looks better than Salesforce Tower. That is just my opinion.

The Salesforce Tower is very impressive and establishes a beautifully proportioned triangular silhouette for the SF skyline. Also, it's far enough away from Transamerica so that building continues to have an iconic presence. Love it!
