It seems like they are taking a long time to complete the crown.

Couldn't agree more. This is a fantastic thread. My earlier assertion that the Salesforce Tower would transform the San Francisco skyline is now confirmed.

Even though Toronto has more high rise buildings, I think it is better than the Toronto skyline now with the addition of Salesforce and a few other buildings.

Being born and raised in SF, I like it a lot, but I still think that 1WTC's antiprism design would have suited the style of SF better (complementing the Transamerica Pyramid).

Hard to argue your point now, however, the recent addition of towers like the Ice Condos, Aura, Ten York and the L Tower are raising the level of TO's skyline. One Bloor West, Toronto's first supertall is now under construction and will help. If proposals like YSL, One Yonge and the Mirvish/ Gehry Towers materialize Toronto will be in good shape skyline-wise.
All that said I'd like to extend kudos to San Francisco on the tremendous burst of development it's experiencing and a round of applause to this website for keeping us informed re: skyscrapers everywhere!

Yeah I think so too, but with Salesforce Tower's taper I think it complements Transamerica without using too similar a form. But I think the Oceanwide Center's triangulated shape, along with its own taper, will complement Transamerica even more. When that tower is finished all the tallest three in the city will taper, and two of them will heavily use triangular shapes in their forms.

That is a nice looking tower, somewhat risqué with clean lines and curves, slim and pretty. Not every tower has to be an abstract mishmash of shapes and architectural design elements.

I just wonder how much the residential units will cost. We might be looking at some 432 Park Ave stuff here.

There’s no residential component, this is all offices. Neighboring 181 Fremont has condos in addition to offices, and the prices are some of the highest in the city: the penthouse is asking $42M.
