Looks like a writer on a newspaper isn't so impressed about the building from his review.

Saleforces employees start moving yesterday and the building will be official to open in a few months

Yeah. But they're still working on the lighting, as well as the plaza/gondola.

Those were all suppose to be finished by now. It looks like it won't be finished until at least June now. I hate the delays.

Not that I want their logo on the tower in the first place, but ... that Salesforce sign is hilariously small.

I totally agree... I mean, what's the point if it's that size?

A few decades ago SF passed a law saying you couldn't have signs above a certain height (i think it was 100') on new buildings. Maybe it also regulated how big signs could be...

Since they can't advertise at the top of the building, they might as well put the sign closer to ground level, so pedestrians and drivers can see it more easily. Not that i like this particular sign lol but it does look out of place there.

That is the dumbest law. I don't get SF for that law. I always wished SF made Union Square more like Times Square or Vegas with all the screens doing advertising and etc. Makes it feel more livelier.

That signage looks tacky and unprofessional. Why didn´t they put a big sign at the edge of the lobby written in a classic font facing the street? Something decent and classy.

I just want to know, you are allowed to post someone else's photos without their permission? How does it work?

You have to provide either the name of the photographer or a link to where you found the picture.
