December 16

Work on the Transbay Terminal is underway but the tower is delayed pending market conditions. (the good news is that the office market in San Francisco is among the healthiest in the US)

construction camera from today. The tower location is in the middle on the right, kind of behind the glass clad building. The rest is the new transbay transit center which actually is under construction.

It's the new tallest in San Francisco.

How is 326 meters not tall? Anything beyond 300 is supposed to be a supertall.


And with that Logic, that means Shanghai and Hong Kong only have 2 tall buildings and Beijing has none, so get off your high horse!

No,the tallest in beijing is 330m.and has no spire.and HK has 3 supertalls by roof height.
I dont know the roof height of this building,perhaps less than 300m,but that's still amazing for san francisco.I think it's the most beautiful city of american if it adds more supertalls.

You misunderstood my post,

You said 326 meters was "not tall"

I said by that logic, Beijing has no tall buildings, as it's tallest is that height, and Shanghai and Hong Kong only have 2 tall buildings as they both have only 2 buildings with a roof height above 326 meters.

I'm not saying that's true but when you say a 330 meter building is "not tall" then it is.

Transgay tower...

That actually sounds better than Transbay tower, and quite fitting for San Francisco.

Eh,I see,I didnt care,
I think a 330meters tower with fog looks very tall,but if without fog,it doesnt look tall.this is the feeling that Beijing WTC 3 gave me.
Fortunately,San Francisco is always foggy.

Of course, by 2100 San Francisco may have 3 supertalls.

lol, that's some interesting logic you have going there. A 1,000+ foot building should be considered "tall" by anyone's standard. They don't call them "skyscrapers", or "super tall" for nothing...
