A few days ago I saw that they were testing the constellation lighting setting on a portion of the crown and it looked absolutely fantastic, wish I could've gotten a picture. I also noticed that a lot of other highrises have upped the lighting on their crowns recently, now I'm even more excited to see the lighting for Salesforce!

Do you know when the lighting and art work of the crown be permanently turned on? They first said it would be in the fall. Looks like it won't be until at least next year now.
I don't like the lighting at the top of the 181 Fremont. Doesn't look good.

706 Mission Street, the base will contain the long awaited Mexican Museum. I don't know if there's a thread, but it'll be around 168m tall. Here's an article: https://www.bizjournals.com/sanfranc...-partners.html

Ok, thanks! I wish it was taller than that, but oh well. Nice to have a museum at its base.

Can't wait for that Transit Center to open. Too bad it keeps getting delayed.

The Salesforce Tower makes a huge impact on the San Francisco skyline, in a very good way (IMHO). It is reminiscent of the Gran Torre in Santiago, Chile, although taller and better integrated into SF's more developed cityscape. Here's a photo of the Gran Torre to illustrate my points.

Looking at this building, I think it looks better than the Salesforce Tower.
