SF could really do without stupidly tall towers -- it's got enough towers as it is, and needn't screw its charm up with latest trash. Tower crap is so yesterday, t'is a long time since a tower was special.

Perhaps SF could do without although Renzo does deliver...but "Tower crap is so yesterday"? What do you mean? Have a look @ the site you're on.

Oh gosh, don't worry. That's Skybar talk.

We still aren't close to a render, but as said, Renzo delivers quality.

Yawn . . . that it's been a long time since tall buildings were novelties.

LOL? It seems to me you might do with elevating your sense of humour . . . many notches' worth -- this is speak along the lines of solid foundations settled down to Earth.

Right, that's the stupid thing with these soaring buildings -- people appear to not be convinced enough with their signature towers . . .

IMO I seriously doubt that this project ever sees the light of day. But, I've got my fingers crossed.

Great, now another city that could do without this let's-claw-at-our-ceiling trash getting woven in here -- whoever designed ain't prestigious enough as to show off the whole erection, eh?

The first one is ugly. It's some weird blend of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Sutro Tower.

The second is probably the best.

The one with the atrium is my favorite. 2nd looks too much a copy of International Finance Centre in Hong Kong.

I like SOM (the third one) design the best. The Pelli (second one) design look too much like IFC in Hong Kong.
