Sucks it got reduced! I'm glad SF will get a new taller building.
This project looks totally beautiful to me...
Like a combination of famous skyscrapers, 2ifc, john hancock, etc.
I miss San Francisco. On my flight back to LA, we passed by San Francisco and it was so pretty, so clean, I can even see Downtown buildings, bay bridge, treasure island, and ggbridge.
I'm sure I would spot this building if I pass by SF once again in the future!

What about the Renzo Piano Towers? Were they cancelled?

It could be a great addition to the skyline even if it's 500ft or so.
The city does not have much lighting but the Embarcadero Towers.
If the building is lit blue or white, it would be terrific!
Hopefully, it does lit up!

My suggestion for the Transbay development:

Build either one 1200 foot tower or a 310-metre tower with 200-foot spire.
Two 900-foot towers and one 600-foot tower are to be built alongside the main tower. No one wants three toers of the exact same height to be the tallest buildings in San Francisco.

Wrong! It's quite unique.
The only city with two buildings of the same height is Kaula Lumper. But they have a twin towers.
But make San Francisco be the only city with two different-design buildings with the same height.

Good design! This kinda reminds me of Hong Kong's 2IFC.

There must be only one supertall in San Francisco. Three tallest buildings in a city that are of the exact same height blows.
