As for the Renzo towers, there hasn't been any renderings, only models of how tall and skinny the towers might be. This proposal has been quite since the Transbay towers competition started.


they seem kind of tacky in some renderings.

Excerps from TJPA's Final Jury Report may give some clue as to some of the potential changes ahead for Pelli's design of the tower:

From: http://www.transbaycenter.org/TransB...inalReport.pdf

That is very good to know, thanks for this excellent information. Sounds like the tower will be perfected throughout time.

Looks like they have quite a few recommendations for Pelli there, whereas on SOMs plan there was really just one, the stacked bus terminal, which could have been remedied. What a complete slap in the face to the SOM fans. If Pelli is allowed to alter his design at the request of the TJPA, why is SOM and Rogers not allowed the same?

I think Rogers' would have been an utterly amazing tower in real life. Still, SF is getting an amazing supertall. There are so many going up in the great nation right now that it's hard to believe.

GOOD NEWS:

"I actually think this is possible. I watched the meeting online and the Board was very adamant that they were concerned about a "bait and switch" with Hines.

They said they have 6 months, and if they change their offer, the TJPA will start the whole design competition process over.

I'm also curious to see the feasibility of Hines raising that amount of money in the current market."

similar in design to the HK IFC. Slimmer version and more rounded top to the HK IFC. still will be a structure that will light up SF.

You had something like 6 posts in a row. How about you combine them all into one.

San Fran has a nice and dense city center, so it makes sense to pack some more really tall towers in there. I like these

as a SF native i gotta say that im very happy with the SOM decision. It makes the most sense and will be sooooo much better than the relic Transbay Terminal that exists today. Ill take a gorgeous looking highrise over a dumpster of a bus station anyday!
