I think that has changed now though...

I never understood it well myself...

But then again, with the way FEMA has dealt with the Hurricane Katrina issue, Im not surprised!!
FEMA doesnt help anybody so...why not proceed? What is HSR?

I agree, it was far better, one of the best SOM proposals i have ever seen actually, such a shame it was rejected.

gavin newsom said that the construction would start very soon, and that the transit center would be better than grand central...

I'm going to disagree with most here, sorry guys, I'm a big fan of Cesar Pelli, but I'm afraid San Francisco should be left alone now, It's never been a 'futuristic' type of city, it's got so much natural charm and charisma, the skyline should have been left alone years ago, there are SOME things that CAN'T be improved. You can't improve San Francisco, only CHANGE it. If you can't improve something, leave it alone......

I don't get that, I think adding this tower will drastically increase the cities ability to attract investors, were close to a very, very large upswing in the economy, the sooner we start the better.

It is very tall for the city which is nice, but design does not convince me...

The fact that it expands office space into the areas directly south of downtown, while adding increased transportation infastructure seems to point to a possible increased attraction to investors.

And he's right, after the recession ends the economy will be on the upswing again, making building office space a more attractive concept.

Plus, it will be nice to have a nice observation deck in San Fran, one is slated for this tower, right? I have been in the one at the top of the Marriott, but it is too low to have a very good view of the golden gate bridge and the transamerica pyramid, arguably SF's most recognized structures.
