By the way, everyone should realize the weather for the last 3 months in SF has been terrible this El Nino winter with one storm after another. Hard to do this sort of concrete work in a deluge. But the period May to October is coming when it hardly rains at all in the Bay Area and conditions are perfect for building. I expect the building to explode upward then. And I'm sure all this was planned into the schedule--it's not unexpected.
There's an ABC7 article/video from the previous page:

"These two projects are once in a lifetime projects it's incredible to see them getting where they are right now," Rob Kane is the Project Manager overseeing the construction of the Salesforce Tower.

The tower will ultimately rise more than 1,000 feet above the ground. The concrete core will be poured using hydraulic lifts that will enable crews to work on the building non-stop.

Technical supervisor Jeff Fluger said, "Years ago we used to control them with water levels, just like the Egyptians built the pyramids. Well now, you can see everything is state of the art."

Work will proceed quickly. The Saleforce Tower will rise a floor every three days.

"By the end of the year we expect to be topped out with the entire building," said Kane.

The tower and center are both expected to open in 2017.

I'll be surprised if it's topped out this year (even in the official sense of the highest bit of the framework in place but probably not the skin and rest of the exterior) but maybe. I'm not arguing the building won't go up rapidly and be ready on schedule. Just the opposite. A floor every 3 days seems aggressive, but if they really think they can do it they probably can, at least when the weather cooperates.

I will point out "in 2017" probably means late in the year as I've said. I suspect it will be very late but in other places they've suggested in the fall.

It's always a rare and precious occasion to see a tallest building rising in any major skyscraper-city in the world.

Yup, at over a 1000 feet high. First and probably the only skyscraper ever to reach that high in SF unfortunately. Too bad that construction has been delayed.

Great tower but a corny name. Why not just call it the CustomerExperience Tower?!

This building resembles uncircumcised male genitalia, lol.

Despite that thought, it's pretty enough, I guess.
