actually, being a former trekker myself I believe that San francisco in the 24th century didn't have any of the scrapers today but a large midrise building to house starfleet HQ SOM definitely, for the height reasons too, SF will have the tallest building in the US outside Chicago/NYC/Las Vegas only if it's supertall gets built

Hehe, if not starfleet HQ then perhaps the building from the Towering Inferno...?

well, actually, hopefully not

The SOM proposal is superb, I love the fan motif on the facade.

I can't decide between SOM and Pelli...

SOM i like the building base... very dramatic...
but Pelli's building cleaner overall...

SOM's station is very dramatic... almost calatrava-ish
Pelli's station incorporates a great park and it still looks nice...

hmm... glad i'm not the one making decisions!

I can't forget the SOM tower
It is always in my mind and i am jealous for SF
When will be the winner be announced?
So i hope PElli wins and SOM will make a similar for Istanbul (Trump Tower or Trump Plaza project)

April 20th is kinda a national drug day. But he's talking about the height being 420 meters. That like 1,400 feet right?

The three renders are brilliant. Not to sure about the first concept but the other two are brilliant. I especially like the third one I think it will fit in with the rest of the skyline really nicely.
