This is about what you can see unless you have access to an overlooking vantage point in a nearby building.

Are there more renders or models that show the impact this tower will have on Frisco's skyline?
Thanks!

Let's remember what happened in Tokyo when the huge earthquake hit in 2011, a 9 magnitude earthquake hit the country, not a single skyscraper even flinched, they swayed as theyre built to. And I believe tokyo buildings are built with less strict codes than their San Franciscan counterparts. I feel much safer running into a skyscraper that's drilled into bedrock and engineered to take a 9 magnitude earthquake, than I do running into some early 20th century townhouse build of masonry.

A seismologist friend of mine said while watching San Andreas "Structural engineers should be a little offended at how flimsy this is making their work look". They kill off skyscrapers in disaster movies because it looks cool, or drives home the point "Oh holy hell, this is a mega-disaster here!!!", but in reality I'd rather ride out an earthquake in a skyscraper than a wood framed or masonry house.

In spite of strongly seismic zone SF is quite skyscraperful city and of course quite beautiful city, and Salesforce Tower bravely continues skyscrapering progress in SF

The skyscrapers of San Francisco are nice and all (though they could be anywhere else), but the true charm and unique quality of the city are its picturesque classical townhouses. And the amazing topography, of course.

A Pelli masterpiece and what views it will have of this magnificent bay area. So glad technology has made these towers completely safe. SF needs more towers like this, not much land left.

I'm glad this tower is that tall, and actually pretty, Pelli's work is excellent, but my personal favorite is 181 fremont, making SF skyline better, denser and with the amount of land in the city, highrises are the answer...
