This is an aesthetically pleasing design for the United States. But it lags far behind the beauty of the Lakhta Centre in Russia. I have commented on the latter's sublime pulchritude in that thread. I could contemplate its complex shadows and playing with light continuously in drawings. Salesforce Tower is still an achievement in that it realigns the earliest post modernist beliefs into something that wishes to appease a large audience today. Kiddingly, an 'American' audience.

Except the Lakhta Center is in the middle of nowhere with a fraction of the FAR of Transbay Tower, which is in the middle of a dense area and about business than show.

Indeed. Comparing this to some Russian resource money showoff phallus, ah well...

Don't get me wrong. This is an impressive edifice. But the TransAmerica Pyramid is still the more distinctive high rise in San Francisco. A building way ahead of its time, and so elegant. Times move on, and I think Salesforce Tower is an edifice San Francisco can be quite proud of.

This building is really "boring", San Francisco deserved something more sophisticated than this turd Cesar Pelli is copy-pasting everywhere.
It looks like an uglier version of the Costanera Center in Santiago, Chile.

Nice to see the crown finally done. It took them a while to complete it.

I don't think it looks ugly. I think it is a nice addition to the skyline. But, I do think the Transamerica Pyramid still looks more distinctive and elegant.

Although I like this building, mostly for how it has given the whole skyline a fresh new look, I still wish they would have gone with the SOM version. That tower was worthy of the Transamerica Pyramid and it would have been like nothing else in the world. So somehow, I understand what gulkanaden and lovecities888 are saying.

disagreed, i think it looks better than Costanera Center. It's a more elegant design, and has more interesting cladding. Costanera is nice too though.

Let's agree to disagree then. I prefer the flat clean cladding over this squared pattern, but it makes sense why they are using that cladding in SF given that all the surrounding buildings have that sort of pattern while in Santiago most of the surrounding buildings have the same flat glass pattern.

Btw i didn't say this building is ugly, just boring -only slightly uglier than the one in Santiago, which is not ugly, not great either- it adds density to the SF skylike but it kind of blends into the mass of buildings without adding much.. i was expecting it to have more of a "wow" factor given that is now the tallest building in the city.
