It is starting to look a little more like a sci-fi city. Lol! Also, it might be just me, but the Transamerica Pyramid, BofA Building, and now Salesforce Tower all seem to be taller than its height would indicate. Again, maybe it is just me feeling that way.

To current american standards they are tall, definitively would feature in any skyline in North America without being 1500 footers
If Sales Force was over 400 mts. taller then Transamerica and Bank of America buildings would definitively look dwarf in comparison to it but at height they complement each other very well.

"An unexpected dimension to Salesforce Tower that I like: it serves as a measuring rod for high summer fog." Photos and captions by John King, SF Chronicle architectural critic, via Twitter (Aug 17).

It seems like construction has slowed. But, they are saying it will still be finished by October.

SAN FRANCISCO | Salesforce Tower | 326m | 1070ft | 61 fl | T/O

Salesforce Today ...



Was a privilege to see his up close as a visitor to this fair city .. amazing that 2 years ago on my last visit I didn't even know it was happening !!

She is truly a behemoth from up close and personally nice that's it's almost identical in height and size to my hometown (Melbourne) future tallest Crown tower ..

I didn't expect the lobby windows to be so clear in reality, but I'm glad they are!

A lot of locals hate it and says it looks like a *****. Lol! In general, San Franciscans hate high rise buildings.
