It looks like an uglier version of the Costanera Center in Santiago, Chile.
have you been to San Francisco? San Francisco exudes elegance and sophistication, so does this tower.

I think it's a great addition for San Francisco. I'm honestly super excited about the various lighting elements being installed in the crown. Looks very promising and can't wait to see the different versions (I think there are like 4 different ones).

My viewpoint is wholly from an outsider looking in though. I haven't been to SF but would love to someday make the journey out there. I've been to Portland and LA a few times. Something about the west coast is so beautiful compared to the gritty Northeast where I'm at.

But everybody agrees that NYC still has the best skyline in America.

You guys cant like lol this is probably the most phallic tower of all time. Its blatently obvious lol this looks like a giant dick on san frans skyline. IMO that second new tower with the white cross bracing is the better design and one of the better towers in recent memory of that height. That tower is amazing. This is nice too.

Yes, I agree. Situated on a hilly peninsula between the Pacific and the Bay, the city of San Francisco has a special quality that delights people since the Gold Rush of 1849. It's a city of beautiful parks, interesting neighborhoods, a fantastic restaurant scene, very cultural, and some really gorgeous architecture (check out the City Hall!)

Now this particular building is not unique - it seems to resemble a few others - it is a fine "trophy" for San Francisco and works well with the skyline.

Uncircumcised, specifically. Apologies for the crudeness, but I also can't help seeing it...

+2 I have been thinking this the whole time. It still looks very high quality and is a monster presence on the SF skyline. But... yeah, is probably the second most phallic tower I can think of behind the one in Barcelona.

San Francisco is the gay capital of the world. A few phallic towers wouldn't be a bad thing.
