Has anyone information on the 'ghost' tower on the right?
It is only a proposal and hasn't been approved.

When you look at the skyline from any direction, you see that San Francisco really needed this.

no question. Even with the new developments , Rincon etc, the skyline from a lot of the iconic viewpoints had not changed in 40 years so yeah, totally agree with you.

There are still a lot of people in SF including a lot of politicians that are anti high rise and anti development. Can't stand those people. Can't wait for the Oceanwide Center buildings to be finished too. Too bad we have to wait for at least 4 more years.

It is left behind when comparing to cities like Hong Kong, NYC, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Dubai, and Chicago when it comes to supertalls. But, it has a very good skyline of its own.

These two resembles Chines, Malaysian architecture-skyscrapers style, l guess, because of investors, buyers from Asia or everything has become so repetitious.

When you get one or two it good enough to boast that you are in the league lol , American Cities are beautiful already without super talls because they' have gorgeous with old high rise buildings with amazing facades so having a few super talls are just bonus , the most important thing is do they really need to have many of them like Hk considering the population ? is the question one should ask .
