The SOM design is clearly the best... wonderful fluid lines and detailing. So elegant.

Pelli's design is nice, but too plain and a little too similar to the IFC in Hong Kong.

The Rogers design is too complicated, too contrived. His trademark "exposed steelwork" looks great on some towers - but not this.

what are the chances that the worst design gets chosen, I.e the first. It's a norm in most places. I hope the 3rd one gets picked. It also looks a little like Libeskind's original freedom tower in most angles.

The turbine atop Roger's tower will account for 10% of it's electricity, and apparently the design is carbon neutral. They are all supposed to be quite energy efficient.

I wanted to like the Roger's design the most (my favorite architect) but don't. As already mentioned - the Pelli building is too much like IFC in Hong Kong. I'll have to go with the SOM proposal as best of the bunch.
I'll be heading over to City Hall today, to take a look at the models.

Amazing... Beautiful tower. My favourite SOM design in the world I think!

and remember, there are still two 800ft tower buildings to be designed as part of this scheme!

The Pelli's project looks very, very similar to Costanera Center in Chile (by Pelli too).

I prefer SOM design, for a supertall, you need a design that became in an icon for the city. SOM make it perfectly

I would have to go for the first one, the Rogers design. I don't think the other two are all that memorable. I also think the wind turbine is a great symbol of California's push in leading the world in green energy. It would certainly be a symbol of San Francisco.

my votes for the SOM, the first is just like the golden gate and the second just like the IFC and ICC in Hong Kong.
and that is an amazing skyline shot

I think this has to be one of the most amazing and promising renders I've ever seen!!! Just stunning, almost like a futuristic cathedral, very imposing and present from street level, but at the same time very graceful and elegant, even modest.
