The construction cam is back up and running.

I know they are doing something there but it just doesn't look like it if you scan back and look at the progress. I wonder how much longer it will be before we see real construction rising?

We use Salesforce here at work, as a third party provider. Urgh. Funny.

Yup, San Francisco will cease to exist and the world will come to an end BECAUSE the word "Salesforce" will be attached to this tower!

Just like it did after they named SF's current tallest building Transamerica - We all now know nothing of significance happened in the art/music/counter culture scene after that corporate hogwash was attached to the building back in '69.

Um San Francisco's counter culture hippie scene is long gone now that the silicon valley yuppies have invaded. The city is getting doucheier by the day.

Transamerica definitely fits San Francisco though:

London’s Heron to Be Renamed Salesforce Tower After Leasing Deal
By Patrick Gower May 22, 2014

The Heron Tower will be renamed Salesforce Tower London after Salesforce.com Inc. agreed to lease six floors of office space in one of the City of London financial district’s tallest buildings.

The San Francisco-based customer-management software maker signed a 15-year lease for 50,000 square feet (4,600 square meters) of space, Salesforce and Heron developer Heron International Ltd. said today in an e-mailed statement. The deal means tenants occupy or have agreed to rent 90 percent of the building, according to the statement . . . .
http://www.businessweek.com/news/201...r-leasing-deal

Because "Heron Tower" was so much classier (or maybe they should have just called it "the Tower of London" and been done with it . . . oh, well, OK).

It is an elegant tower. Beautiful addition to the city for sure, regardless the name.

Hmm, interesting name change. Maybe they'll abbreviate it to S F tower, and it can be pretended to stand for San Francisco.

The name is just a technicality anyway. You can call whatever you like. I still call Willis Tower, Sears.
When can we expect foundation work to start- maybe this fall?

Lots of activity on-site. I don't pretend to know what all these machines do, but they were all busy doing whatever it is; they were not sitting idle:
