SOM's proposal is by far the best.
Pelli's tower is a copy of other of his recent projects

Holy shit....... Unreal rendering. And san francisco already kicks the LA skyline's ass, but if all of these buildings get built, holy, this skyline will be unreal!

SOM needs to be built.

Btw...both LA and San Francisco already have iconic skylines so lets not turn this into a LA/SF rivalry.

pelli's looks like his Mori building in Tokyo... but this version is nicer


I find SOMs silly-looking... kinda not very serious... and SanFran has a good, solid, no messing-about skyline; its all very business-like. That tower might look good in Dubai or La Defense. So Im left liking Roger's tower... I think it would look the best when built, and is benefitted least by the renders...

I think all three are extremely beautiful designs, but my heart belongs to SOM's. It's so elegant and classy.

I second that.

The SOM design looks earthquake friendly as well.

The first one is hideous. The second one i would have wanted the most IF 2IFC hadn't existed.

actually, at first I thought the skidmore looked like the original freedom tower. The actual model from those pics now reminds me of the Russia Tower, but I agree the Skimore one is the best and not surprisingly, the tallest. I also do like Pelli's design, pretty much all of his creations are beautiful but I agree with most that the shape looks similar to 2IFC in HK.

damn, this project is gonna be massive. towers, shopping center, hotel, bus station, underground rail station (to LA, SD, and Sacramento). this alone will get the whole area around itr going up higher, and will then connect the downtown area to mission bay (ballpark area). the city will be very different 10 years from now. from one natives perspective. think its great!

Now if only California can build that high speed train. Can you imagine San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco all connected?
